no, it's not just you :(
anyone know how to find out who the evo maintainer is

Open a bug on LP, or find the bug about it, nominate for Lucid, and
*explain* why it is important. We will then certainly look at it.

so we can
hassle him/her directly,

Really, not a very good idea. But, of course, you are free to do
whatever you want. And I am free to disregard hassling.

since they likely dont pay much attention
to this list?

I, for example, have been trying to. Unfortunately -- for me --, the
signal to noise ratio is too big. Now I only skim it.

2.31 is an interim, *development*, release. This will be the 2.32
stable release when it is released. Please keep in mind that there is
no guarantee this specific bug fix can be ported back to 2.30:
Evolution is going thru major architectural changes now (and this is
why we kept Lucid with 2.28, and only now we are releasing 2.30).

But, anyway, without the Gnome bug number and an SRU request, nothing
will be done.

Is there any intention for LTS users to get an update to this
I know its version-number-frozen, normally, but this bug bites
many and should be an exception to the rule and this version
pushed, for a supposed stable LTS release it is unacceptable to
put up with this mess every day for the next few years.

An option would be a backport. Stable versions are not upgraded.
