[maemo-developers] N900-DE Contacts Import from Maemo VCARD Export

Recent improvements in the N900-DE have made it viable to get further into
the system and do longevity testing of much of the system.
Eventually, we hope to allow more of your Maemo data to be imported and
usable within the DE build. [1]

As part of this testing we have been looking at how to import Contacts from
Maemo into MeeGo N900-DE.

The rational being that you can have more "normal" N900 experience by
including your regular Maemo data.
We are working on Mounting the main eMMC VFAT partition partition of maemo
to allow this data crossover. [2]

At this point however, we have a problem:

How can we inside MeeGo N900-DE Import the contact cards themselves using a
scripted command line tool?
Thanks to discussions with the guys in IRC (Robin and Thomas especially!) we
have gotten this far and they have both indicated this is possible.
It would help if anybody on this list could offer this knowledge and let us
know how to import these contacts.

Best Regards,
