It is desirable to do this in the most efficient manner possible and

Towards this end, I wish to understand how the synthesis engine xml

the synthesis web site.
As you said,
(hopefully) more gentle introduction to that subject.
What seems to be missing is a sort of quick overview - in particular
the recent syncevolution release
notes refer to re-organizing the xml config files to make each file
be reserved for a particular role
That only changes the origin of the XML config, not its role or
semantic. Instead of editing one large file, you can add or replace
individual chunks of it. The README.rst explains that in the section on
An overview of the directories placed on the wiki would be quite
I see directories for datatype files, and remote rules, and scripts.
Agreed, some README files in each of these directories would be useful.
On the other hand, once you know the outline of a Synthesis XML config,
the directories are fairly obvious.
One thing, I am trying to figure out is how the mapping is
I suspect it is all considered in an incoming context, and I need to
go to each
client directory to find the appropriate xml.
Right now, the same profile is used for the SyncML peer and the local
Evolution data storage. There are no per-client profiles.
For example, for syncevolution the syncevo/configs directory seems
be the place to start looking.
There is a remoterules directory. In this context what is remote -
client or server side?
If running as client, the server is remote. If running as server, the
client is remote.
Where would I find the maemo version of this? Are their any special
cases for maemo yet?
There are no Maemo specific versions, and the default SyncEvolution in
Maemo (the latest stable version 0.9.2) does not yet use the revised XML
config layout. The profiles however should be the same.
