I think that is an excellent summary of many rather large scary e-mails :-)

As i've tried to say, Conduit is what Tomboy should have used for sync. I
think I see *another* e-mail where I can explain this better :-)

I don't know how to explain it. Conduit is meant to be desktop wide sync.
Unfortunately Tomboy had to roll their own this release cycle and we were
stuck on the outside of the GNOME wall were we couldn't really help.

This is a bit of a setback for Conduit adoption! But if average users want
to sync in this release cycle Conduit is perhaps still the best option,
which is why Sandy was so helpful to us. (Thanks :D)

I'm going to go to the other e-mail now, there are more specific questions
I might actually be able to answer :-)
