What I had in mind when I mentioned 'integration' was not :
making e-d-s the 'only' backend for Tomboy. I do not see any
point making Tomboy to use e-d-s a requirement for inclusion in
What I did have in mind was :
Ability for Tomboy and EDS to share information - each acting
as an *additional* source for the other. I am a heavy user of
both Tomboy and the Memos - I _do_ not want every single Tomboy
note inside my Memos or under e-d-s.
But if the two work together - they do open a lot of interesting
possibilities. Just to name a few...
* Ideas-capture is best done by Tomboy for me - but while
operating out of my calendar/todo list - I always prefer to park
a bunch of notes relevant to a given task/appointment inside my
e-d-s information space.
I would like to able to associate a live reference to the
notes rather than a stale snapshot of the notes. I want to read
them inside my memos, associate them with my projects and
schedule but retain the flexibility of entry/modification via
* I have the habit of tracking open-loops with individuals my
devoting a Tomboy note for each of them and I look it up
whenever I am mailing the person. I would certainly love if a
hover on the contact in evolution can bring up my Notes
associated with that person.
