The guys who are taking care of the projects are brilliant but a little shy and
did not advertise their work until now, so I decided to push them a little bit.
That's good news, thanks for sharing.
The first project deals with exploiting syncevolution to sync a
number of pc's
and cell phones in a seamless and usable way. In other words it is aimed at
efficiently and easily using syncevolution server.
Patrick already answered some questions from the developers of the project.
Good that had the time to reply ;-} Typically I try to treat all
questions with the same amount of attention, but when I am busy there
may be delays. In that case it does help to explain a bit why questions
are asked and introduce yourself, because projects working with
SyncEvolution definitely deserve a bit of extra care.
The second project deals with adding versioning capabilities to
engines for both pc and phones. It is very interesting as it uses svn and other
packages to produce an easy to use and efficient server:
I never tried it, but with the file backend that should indeed be very
easy and efficient to do. Just archive the whole directory and restore
individual files as needed. Restoring also the original time stamp would
be better than setting the current time, because then clients which
still have that restored item do not need to pull it again, but this is
a minor optimization.
