The code in github works, primarily it is just an update to install.rdf
to fix the max version number for thunderbird. You could fix the xpi
you have installed to do that.
You're not the only one to be wondering! It would be great to get some
hint from Mozilla Labs that this (important!) work is getting some

First, I just wanted to thank Mike for such an expedient reply to our information quiry.
Looks like things are as I suspected--the project in its imediate itteration and form is "dead", but we have "two, new" projects coming about as a result of the research done--definately a plus--and hopefully, a new standardization with at least Google, which is great for us, as we get to "set the bar" so to speak.
Mike, I do have one question regarding this new "web based" ui for future iterations of the "contacts" model: Will at any time in the future the teams be working to move our physical system based contacts into a universal format, floating in cyberspace on a secure and unisolated server setting?
I ask because as a primarily Windows based PC user, I was unable to utilize the benifits of 'Contacts' to its fullest, since support for our Windows folder content was unsupported at this time.
Do you know, or have any inclings as to whether the web based teams will be pushing to isolate our data, such as via a contacts sync? Such as by logging onto "Contacts Sync" via Thunderbird or Firefox, et. al. you would be able to access your user contacts from any api, anywhere by simply entering your user login, etc, and it would travel over a highly secure and encrypted SSL 2.0+, or the like, transmission?
I know that was my biggest interest in 'Contacts', although, having the ability to contact friends from one source, like the Thunderbird ui, is ideal.
