Seriously, how useful is that? Why would you do that for evolution and
not for other windows, anyway?

Maintaining evolution plugins is not easy and requires synchronisation
at every transition. I’m not thrilled to have them made more complicated
by such a useless package.

There is another tool, alltray, which is for moving to tray just about
anything. This is a different thing - a "native" way for Evolution to
support the notification area.

You can make a picture of its demand by quick googling:
http://google.com/search?q=evolution+in+tray

There is different solutions, and I think a plugin is most clear way.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of evolution-tray back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting evolution-tray, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 633795 ITP: evolution-tray -- Plugin for Evolution to put it in notification area
 owner 633795 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <633795@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
