I recently did a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.10. I forgot to export my contacts from Evolution and was horrified to learn these are not stored in a flat file and the database is not compatible between versions (great work Evolution devs).
Some poking around on the internet led me to a Perl file to that was able to get the data. Then some Python work let me format it correctly as a VCARD (.VCF) file. But when I tried to import it I didn’t get all my contacts. More sleuthing led me to realize that only the first 75 were being imported. I wrote this short Python script to break up my 190-contact VCARD file into parts that had no more than 75 entries. I hope it will help you out too!
