The resource is online, idle an has been every time I looked. In the 
meantime, I've restarted Kontact multiple times, but as far as I can 
tell from the modification times and file contents in that directory, 
changes are not written. Neither are they picked up, when I change one 
of the .vcf files there manually.

So, the interesting question remains: where are my contacts?
