This is probably more urgent as syncevolution presently fails to build from source in Maverick. Originally it failed from a redefinition of "sync", but if you fix this, there are deeper issues in beta2a where it will still fail to build related to dbus changes.

I just checked, and unfortunately sid does not have a later update as yet either. So actually this cannot be done as a pure "sync request" (from Debian), but rather I think would have to be submitted as a new upstream update, which means a new ubuntu package has to be built (can of course be based on the existing debian packaging, but would be something like syncevolution-1.0-0ubuntu1), and a debdiff created from the current package in the archive to the new one. Once done this can then be uploaded and submitted for sponsorship.

I suppose Ubuntu users could also try out these .debs.
