kde addressbook integration in libreoffice via akonadi connector

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Unconfirmed
openSUSE-11.4
Rejected Information

Description

It would be desireable to have a working addressbook connection/access between libreoffice and kde addressbooks out of the box.

This could be achieved by implementing an akonadi connection in libreoffice. What is needed for that, is according to Tobias Koenig (one of the akonadi developers) an extensible imap library and a dbus connection.

User benefit:

As libreoffice is the choice for most users and the only option with regards to more advanced features, core functionality needed in an office environment is still missing. Like addressbooks being available across applications to be used in e.g. mail merge.

Akonadi - the service behind KDE4 to share PIM data across applications - should be used to access addressbook/calendar/ToDo data from within LO.
