And what are you suggesting as a replacement ? If Evolution ends up in
the bitbucket, something else with the same functionality should replace
it. So what other Gnome email+calendar+addressbook+task management
application should i use instead of evolution ?

And why is evolution unmaintained? I mean it seems to be important
enough that expensive commercial Linux distributions like RHEL use it as
a default email client.
