Yes, I'm hoping vdirsyncer is popular enough that someone will step
forward as maintainer. There's still an official package in Arch Linux,
but I'm not sure how long that will last if the package ultimately
remains unmaintained.

My current syncing solution relies on the following tools:

 - khard (https://github.com/scheibler/khard)
 - vdirsyncer
 - card/caldav server (Radicale)
 - DAVx5 (android app)

I use khardel (an emacs front-end to khard) to create and edit contacts
within emacs:


khardel also has a helper function for selecting and inserting email
addresses: khardel-insert-email

For address completion within emacs, I normally just use notmuch's
built-in auto-completion (which based on indexed addresses of emails
either sent or received). But it's nice to be able to fall back on
khardel and my own contacts collection.

I code small integrations in emacs around khard's command-line
interface. For instance, I pipe khard contacts into an interactive emacs
function that allows me to select a contact/phone number and then send
an sms via kdeconnect-cli.
