We're considering using Google Apps as groupware, with our Mac and Linux users (and likely a few of the Windows users as well) accessing mail and calendar using Thunderbird with Lightning. We seem to have worked out most features, but have not found a way to access Global Address List.

Is there a way to sync the Global Address List to Thunderbird?

Update: The Zindus addon as suggested by @superuser, does not have support for Global Address List from Google Apps (it does however support GAL from a Zimbra server)

You can use an addon called Zindus. It should be able to sync your Global Address List as well as your personal address book.

Unfortunately Zindus only support GAL from Zimbra, not from Google :( – Roy Nov 28 '12 at 12:13
Maybe try I personally have not used this, and the project doesn't look very active, and there seems to be a few bugs they have to work out. So, proceed with CAUTION. – superuser Dec 2 '12 at 4:19
No Global Address List in that one either. Thanks anyway :) – Roy Dec 6 '12 at 8:49
