Introduction to GNOME Contacts

GNOME Contacts is a simple contacts application that allows you to view your contacts as well as edit their details and create new contacts. Online integration is an important aspect of GNOME Contacts - it will seamlessly synchronise with the contacts stored in online accounts. If you have the same person in multiple online accounts, GNOME Contacts will automatically link them together into the same contact.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.6 systemd platform.
