Description Raphaël Droz 2013-01-20 18:08:57 UTC
There are 3 errors in the API documentation.
One is about casting va_arg which could be time-consuming to figure-out.
Another is about a misleading assumption about a fetching inside a vcard group
The last one is only a typo where function names are capitalized.

On a side note: upstream bugtracker seems read-only and no update happened for more than a decade.
Alternatively to upstream provides another contact email at the end of README.

@maintainer: Do you ever have, by any chance, taken contact with upstream to ensure project continuation in the long-run ?

Apparently we don't build documentation on this package. Also, your patch does not apply.

The mobile-phone herd has been dissolved to maintainer-needed due to absence.

This package has no maintainer so this bug may go unnoticed for a long time.
