Played around with some unmaintainable Evolution plugin called evolution-statusicon I wrote once.
Since upgrading to the latest openSUSE 11.1 release I felt it was missing badly on my desktop.
It had to be compiled within the Evolution source due to non-public header usage (e-shell stuff) which led to some problems packaging it or even distributing it outside of the main Evolution release.
Today tough, I managed to fix the requirements to compile it as a standalone EPlugin quite easily and thus pumped out a release plus corresponding packages for openSUSE.
The plugin provides a small notification area icon to show/hide/quit Evolution’s windows and comes handy if you have your favourite PIM open all the time.
