Subject Re: Should I implement support for AddressBook sources on iOS?
Date Wed, 11 Jul 2012 16:42:27 GMT
Not sure about how to modify the interfaces.. When it comes to changing
the APIs, we have to be careful as this will affect all platforms.

We are revisiting APIs after 2.0.. I know it's not very helpful. I'm not
sure how much effort is going into the W3C contacts API [1]. The last
draft is from June of last year.. We have many issues in JIRA related to
shortcomings of this API. This API may be a candidate to rewrite and
create our own, one that meets the demands of cordova users. My 2 cents.

As for where to send the CLA, at the top of the CLA it says where to email
a scan of the document, or where to mail it in. See the top of the ICLA
document [2].
