I'm curious about how the Gnus users manage their contacts lists. More
precisely how to define list of emails for Gnus like the mail-alias
setting in bbdb with other databases like vdir ?

I'd been using bbdb, synchronizing its list with google contacts with
ASynk (, but the syncing has been broken for me for a
few months, and anyway the google Contacts API will stop working on June
15 (

I've been playing with a setup using vdirsyncer between google
contacts/a local vdir/my own CardDav server on a NAS. It seems to work
fine to synchronize these databases but I'm missing some features of
bbdb, like the use of mail-alias to define mailing lists.
