Re: [Evolution-hackers] EvOOolution-Communicator [was: adding an Instant Messenger to evolution to offer it to openoffice]

Hi Andre and list,

thanks for the fast feedback, sorry to mix up sylpheed and evolution,
but wanted to write to evolution, as this has as well a calendar function.

So two ideas come here:
(1) open office needs definately an email client and maybe an IM client.
(2) Thunderbird will stay at Mozilla and the new roadmap is, to bring
online and offline communication together, so like googletalk in

Retroshare is a cool Instant Messenger and Evolution is a cool Email client too.

Both could merge and the atempt for this mail is, to bring both to
OpenOffice as a new Component.

I do not speak for Gnome only, but for all POSIX systems. Especially Windows.
Retroshare is not "just" an IM, it is serverless and has secure file
transfer. This is the function OOo is interested in, as this allows to
send documents secure within collaborating teams.

Good to hear, that you already planning to integrate the Instant
Messaging function.
Is there any SVN for the libpurple integration into Evolution? Or is
it just discussion?

libpurple is quite good, use it, rs is though a cool serverless
jabber2 standard (see rfc in the forum), which should be added to
libpurple.. or the mailclient.

The idea is to offer this hybrid email client with rs IM to OpenOffice.

As Evolution has as well the calendar function this matches perfect
and as rs has the file transfer function of secure document transfer
among collaborating coworkers, this is the function OOo asked for this

So I am trying to bring Evolution to OOo, but with serverless IM and
for this the RS core library needs just a crossplatform gui, you use
gnome, dunno, if this is working under windows and other linux.

There are some debian and kubuntu and others installers available,
maybe you want to test:

Would be nice to hear, that there is a (technical) way to port
Evolution to Windows and to hear of interest to bring in all POSIX RS
IM under the gui?

If this is given, we could found a co-project for OpenOffice.
Think that EvOOolution-Communicator is quite a good name?

Regards Mike.
