The version of EUDC in question should be able to read bbdb 2.x or bbdb
3.x formatted databases transparently.  But I haven't done much testing
with eudc-query and writing BBDB entries from there.  Can you file a bug
against Emacs eudc, with a series of steps to reproduce?

That said, it's hard to even know what combination to test because EUDC
is in Emacs core, whereas BBDB is either provided by the distro, or
built from source, or installed from some another ELPA.

Managing the EUDC/BBDB dependency would be much easier if BBDB were in
GNU ELPA or core.

I guess now is a good time to revisit: is there any chance of BBDB ever
getting assignment paperwork from its existing contributors?  As I
understand it, though BBDB 3 is largely a rewrite it still uses code
patterns from prior contributors that may not be clear from a copyright
