PIM Team at Chemnitzer Linux-Tag 2004

Chemnitzer Linux-Tag 2004, Germany's second largest Linux community event takes place March 6 and 7 on the campus of the University of Technology in Chemnitz, Germany. Other than offering an exhibition, workshops and talks, it will also be the hosting platform for a meeting of members of the KDE PIM team as well as members from the groupware projects eGroupware, Exchange4Linux, Kolab, and OpenGroupware. KDE will also have a booth in the exhibition area.

The PIM meeting will be used to discuss integration of groupware servers into the KDE PIM Framework and working on other features listed on the
feature plan
, which will eventually trigger the release cycle for the pending KDE PIM 3.3 release.

Hope to see you in Chemnitz!

I welcome the efforts of the KDE PIM team and really want to "egg on them":
Kontact is going to be a beasty killer app! Connect to eGroupware, connect to Kolab, connect to (enter your favourite groupware here)... How cool's this, folks?!

What I like most is the history of this project. Watching once separated apps evolve into one mature component-based PIM suite is simply amazing. What the KDE developers have done here is to actually reuse existing code by taking advantage of kparts in best unix fashion. This gives the impression of KDE and its technology being a solid foundation for scalable development. nice...

Yay! For a first real release I was impressed with Kontact and all the PIM tools in KDE 3.2. It's a pretty good advertisement for KDE programming.

Is it also possible to create an interface to Plone?

by CPH (not verified)

I think that it should be. I think that xmlrpc is being used so why not ask for help on the [email protected] mailing lists ?

reading through the kde-pim mailing lists and projects on sourceforge, there seem to be many projects dedicated to getting devices to sync with linux/kde/kontact.

There are at least kitchensync, kpilot, synce, multisync, kandy, synce-KDE. Did I miss any?

Could someone knowledgeable please tell me which projects are doing what? Which have just been renamed, which are plugins to others, who is cooperating? What is gnome doing, something completely different, anything at all? Which one is supporting what devices?
