Re: [Opensync-devel] Ubuntu UDS-Boston, Syncing solutions

5.12 AM here. Have just risen and am somewhat groggy so I apologise if
my thoughts are a little.. messy.

The stuff i'm landing to enable gconf sync also fixes one of the
problems I had with this work. Then I just have to write a thin shim for
each opensync plugin as i can't figure out how to dynamically probe
opensync in a way that makes sense for the UIs we want to support. I
hope the shims are something I can ditch, but thankfully most of the
logic is encapsulated in the main OpenSync dataprovider - the shims
should be tiny.

Moving forward from there, the refactoring work John S has done has
brought us closer to the point where we could sync with different
engines and our underlying platform is a lot less GNOME dependent -
It's possible to run conduit entirely without GTK as a dbus daemon and
then connect a UI to it over dbus and be able to create the same kind of
UI as well as "new device" wizards.

I think I have more to add, but need to get ready for work. I'll post
again in a bit.
