Topics

Projects

  • Nepomuk integration in KMail (and possibly other PIM applications) in respect to the feeder rewrite.
  • Groupwise calendar resource for Akonadi
  • Akonadi importer for Polka

Discussions

Marketing

Akonadi and as a consequence KMail and the other PIM applications still have a pretty bad reputation. People perceive it as slow, using too much memory, or generally unstable. We should identify what are real problems and what is myth and come up with a plan how to address both.

Basically, there are two issues:

  • Akonadi is perceived to be useless
  • Akonadi is perceived to be unstable, buggy, slow

Both can be addressed by some decent articles and improvements to the website(s). The recent 'what did we fix in KMail' was great way of addressing the second point and we need to start writing about concrete examples of what will be possible (and esp about what is already done) asap to address the first issue.

libkolabxml

State & implementation of the new XSD based Kolab library, see

including:

  • Which payload format could/should be exposed through ASAP for Server Side Akonadi clients?

Server Side Akonadi

See http://wiki.kolab.org/User:Greve/ServerSideAkonadi

Points to discuss:

  • Dependencies, in particular kcalcore, kabc
  • Formats, see above
  • D-Bus related concerns for server architecture

KDE PIM on Mobile

How is Kontact and other parts of KDE PIM doing on the N9, on Android, on other mobile platforms?

Kontact Touch should be available through the community app store, rather than hand-b0rked installation, see

How to make that happen?
