Please correct me if I am wrong (I am just a user): I understood there was a
rewrite / adaptation of the pimlico dates and tasks to fit the look and feel
of Openmoko distribution. So the applications openmoko-dates2 and
opnemoko-tasks2 were put in the OM distributions and repositories.

* I think/heard that these openmoko versions were not the last version of
the original pimlico project or do not follow the evolution of the pimlico
project (I may be wrong). Now the version number of pimlico is 4.6.
* Now, you can install the openmoko versions only on OM distributions. On
SHR, I tried to use the Angstrom repository as I wrote in the wiki :
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Pimlico , but It is not a correct way because
if you use this repository under SHR without breaking the installtion. So I
opened a ticket in the SHR trac for this...

The best would be someone with the knowledge, time and will to compile it to
an "simple" ipk and then put it on opkg.org

On debian, you can easily test them with
apt-get install dates tasks

About syncing and data from the web:
* with the last version, I think you can open a ics file from the web
* the 4th tool from pimlico is about syncing.. I hope it is just a matter of
time http://www.pimlico-project.org/sync.html
* the projet PISI would like to implement the support of ICS files. If so,
pbm solved ! http://www.opkg.org/package_191.html  I am in contact with them
to speak about pimlico
* the data format of the pimlico suite is based on the Evolution project
http://projects.gnome.org/evolution/   There are tools to sync the data
withy the well-known syncml protocol
http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/syncevolution?s[]=syncml  So someone must be able
to adapt / port it on the moko ?
* you can copy / paste the ics files located here :
Ok, this is a very rough way, but it is ok if you only modify

For now, it has no alarm support. Personally, I do not care, but people

As a conclusion I would like to say that I use my freerunner as a
professional mobile computer, and I am really missing simple ways to read /
modify /sync the calendar and tasks and contacts !
Why not propose a cofundos project to help developper improve pimlico (and
its sync tool) and PISI ?

I hope many will answer and propose their vision / tips / softwares

PS : I tried gpe-calendar, wich seemed great, but it does not handle big
calendars witouht crashing (it becomes slower and slower and then you can do
nothing more
