As I mentioned in the "Funambol" threat, there is already a tool which can
synchronise via SyncML, but it was written for Qtopia-4.3.1 so someone might
have to look at it ..
Wait, here is the text of the older post:
I guess this is an open secret already, but just in case someone wants to have
a synchronisation solution which uses SyncML:
This tool can be used to sync your appointments, tasks and contacts with any
SyncML capable server or web-services (my.funambol.com, ...). The current
solution was written against and tested with Qtopia-4.3.1, it is known to
compile and run with Qtopia-4.4.0 (and probably QtExtended) but there are
issues in the backend I used (Funambol C++ Client API), so if somebody wants
to step up, I would be glad to offer some help :-) And of course I'd like to
see it integrated somehow into one of those OpenMoko distros.
