I was wondering about helping out with Conduit. I'll be upfront and say that I am still working at my Python (and general coding) skills, but as I see it I want to have a program on Linux that will sync my cellphone with all my other addressbooks and calendars, and seeing as at this point I can't find a good one, I figured I should just try helping out to make one. I have already downloaded the 0.3.15 version, and have been hacking away at it to try and figure out the structure of things a bit better. I have managed to get my (dumb)phone working with a usb connection through conduit for my contacts, but I wanted to ask some questions about proper format, calls, etc before I start really putting a lot of time into it. Hopefully I can be a bit of help, but let me know if I can ask you some more specific questions over email or IRC.

Hi Matthew,

Sorry I took so long to respond to your email. Please feel free to ask questions to myself, or to the conduit mailing list.

I would be interested in seeing what you have done so far. Feel free to attach your work to bugzilla, or you can send it to the mailing list. In SVN head there are three prototype ways of talking to phones over USB.

1) Synce (for windows mobile) - Not yet complete, talk to John Carr about the status
2) Gammu/Wammu - Python interface to those phones (mostly nokia) supported by Gammu. Not complete.
3) Gnome-phone-manager - Talks to gpm over dbus to get phone details. Not completed - talk to John Carr about the status

Please reply with any questions
