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

About PISI - I am one of the developers there and I am happy to read about all the input for further developments here.
As it looks to me now, there are different options, which probably have different priorities. I have been pretty much busy with the Contacts part of PISI; my brother will now start pushing the Calendar part a bit more (after I will have done some refactoring on this side by the end of this week). First task there for him will be proper ICS support. There is a Python library available for doing all the low level files read / write (which I used sucessfully for VCF files already); so it shouldn't be too much troubles to come up with a proper implementation.
For the contacts part, I would need some more input for requested data sources. For now, we support QTopia address book (SQLite, e.g. OM 2008.12), LDAP Server, VCF files and Google Contacts. Awaiting are:
- opimd support
- SIM card support
- SyncML / Opensync support
- Online VCF support (just download / upload the file)
- Pimlico / Evolution

My impression is, that SyncML / Opensync is my next task. I was searching for some libraries already; and I found two implementations at a very early stage - I will go and test them soon.
The Evolution / Pimlico stuff - I thought would be somehow outdated already on the Openmoko!? The upcoming 2009 will be opimd?? Well, last time I looked for it, it had not progressed much behind the initial idea.
BTW: Has anybody yet tested PISI on a distribution other than OM 2008.12? I always tested on this one ...
