This is of course easy to do. And I don't mind doing the backport.

I'm also willing to do this if the release team approves it. One thing I
(belatedly) realized is that we need to think about not only the changes
introduced by a new upstream version of syncevolution (some 360 commits
between 1.0beta2 and 1.0, about 80 of these are translations) but also
in libsynthesis (another 77 commits).
