I added support for NetworkManager to syncevo-dbus-server. There are

Looks reasonable, works as promised :-) Thanks a lot. I'll cherry-pick
those for "master". I like to keep a linear history on the master
branch, that's why I don't just merge branches. We debated the pros and
cons a while back here, that's what we settled on.
There are also my changes for the sync-ui, which add the possibility
change the sync interval from the gui.
That one is a bit more problematic. Do we really want to expose the user
to the internal text format? Some kind of slider would be better IMHO.
The empty string field also doesn't tell the user that there is already
a default set, so it looks like he has to choose something, without any
guidance. The original issue wasn't so much about "let users choose an
interval" but "provide feedback on how auto sync works"; following that
logic, showing the default would be more important then letting the user
The sync UI doesn't have a way to determine the built-in default (30m),
so we would have to duplicate that information - not nice, but the best
that can be done at the moment without extending the D-Bus API. See
I also had a more practical problems: I typed "10". After that, adding
any additional character causes the field to loose focus. I also see
that the UI does a SetConfig() call with these preliminary values.
