Who is actually developing this thing? Maybe could be nice, to get some forcast here in order to make a decision.

I guess that will be in PISI before the next week starts ;)

It has been really hard to find Python libs for SyncML. Lately, I was in touch with John Carr, a / the developer of Conduit (Gnome Sync written in Python), who recently integrated SyncML in a Conduit branch. He gave me some information about his implementation and I will have a look this weekend, how much I can apply this to PISI. Fingers crossed ...
