The conduit SVN version has support for basic two-way sync of f-spot,
this might be shipped in the next release of Conduit which is due
shortly. I think all the necessary dbus interface machinery is in
F-Spot trunk now. So hopefully for GNOME 2.22, this should just work
for people using F-Spot and Conduit.. The only downside is that the
F-Spot UI must be running to do this kind of syncing. Hopefully long
term F-spot might implement something like Banshee "2".. Which (I
believe) accesses it's database over dbus...
With the f-spot -> conduit interface implemented we can two-way sync
with a variety of photo sites, any file system that GNOME VFS supports
(including SSH), removable devices (eventually i hope to add iPod
(with camera attachment) support) and other f-spot instances on the
network (discovered using Avahi ZeroConf).
Obviously this is a small project working on many different areas at
once so if F-Spot syncing is important to you, we'd welcome any
