Indeed, in master
connectivity/source/drivers contains these dirs:
so no sqlite too.
but I also searched a branch containing sqlite with:
Perhaps I used wrong filter.
Now even if there's some code waiting to be merged, it should be relevant to
put it in experimental mode so people may give a try to Sqlite native
In a second time (same time but still in experimental mode in this case?),
we need also the "plumbering" so TB address book driver uses Sqlite part.
Anyway, it could be the beginning of a solution but in mid future only (6
months/1 year or more), for the present situation, the current TB address
book driver is broken for TB >= 78.
Remark: not sure if it's useful to consider those who'll stay on TB < 78. I
mean we're talking about future LO 7.2.0 (except if we remove this part too
in branch 7.1).
