Re: GUI Mockups

Hey Alexandre,

Yes I am talking of Coisas, it's only a research project for now,
because the ideas are too grand and too "blue sky" to really be a
production project. But helpfully the research will lead to better ways
of organising the data.

It is no accident that my work is both python based and dbus based. I've
been watching Conduit for some time, as well as keeping tabs on
open-sync and some other data projects.

If my theory is right (see svg slides in the bzr doc directory) then I
intend for a user data services like infrastructural component to
replace EDS, kde-pim, Akonadi completely and implement most of
rythembox, f-spot, gthumb (and more) hardware and online integration.

Anyway, whilst Conduit is making something that actually works and that
is useful today. I'm trying to hack on tomorrows Linux/Cloud/Device
integration layers, which is a little more scary than sync :-D
