Re: GSoC project - Synchronization with Mobile Devices


I should probably also introduce myself - I'm mentor of Peter and
author of Gammu and Wammu.

Please do not do this. Many parts of the wizard are really broken and
it should be written again from scratch (and it should be part of
Peters project).

I think adding vCard 3.0 to Gammu would be cheaper. I will investigate
the differences.

Well, most phones do not expose this information, but it could be
provided at least for some.
