Re: [Fwd: How opensync and conduit co-operate?]

Hi Halton

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

So i am very interested in your thoughts on how your opensync GUI
project can co-operate with Conduit.

I'm not entirely sure of how it will all fit together but my current
thoughts are that opensync people can leverage Conduit as a high level
platform for both opensync and conduit's sync logic and dataproviders. 

The main area where we improve on the services offered by opensync is
deeper integration with the desktop. Opensync is quite low level. On top
of that Conduit deals with identifying when an "interesting" device is
plugged in and notifying the GUI's that are running that they have a new
target to show in their UI or ask the user about. I consider that just a
starting point for what we can offer though.

Our own plugins currently do some things which i'm not sure opensync has
the infrastructure in place to support. For example, when you change
tomboy notes, files or gconf keys we'll autosync them. This will cover
Evolution as soon as we have time too.

One option you have is to build on top of our dbus API and use that to
manipulate both opensync and conduit stuff. We can run conduit
"headless", exporting just its dbus methods and signals. I think
everything the GUI uses is available over dbus.
