Revision as of 21:12, 11 October 2012


Please do add your topics.


These are just possible topics that i'd like to know more about.

  • Introduce new PIM folks to the PIM principle.
  • A lot of Akonadi knowledge sharing so a broader range of people knows what it all about and can use it in applications. Right now i know close to nothing about it.
  • Developing PIM applications.
  • Developing simple Akonadi example applications which showcase Akonadi and should hopefully make it easier for developers to integrate Akonadi in their applications
  • KMail dev sprint and bug squashing?
  • Related to kmail but mentioning specifically. Since KDE 4.9.2 there seems to be an issue with kmail getting slower. I'd be nice to dive in this issue with the people there and fix it.
  • QML Calendar Akonadi integration sprint.
  • Figuring out all the PIM classes and improving their documentation.
  • Discussing the future of Kontact. Right now it looks out of place in the current KDE. Perhaps replacing applications with modern ones where they exist and fit KDE. I for one would like to replace KOrganizer with my QML Calendar once it's production ready (far from that at the moment).


These are just possible topics that i'd like to know more about.

  • Showcase how may laptop gets up to 2gb memory using KMail, try to fix that.
  • Add a new status for resources called "Unconfigured"
  • EntityTreeModelPrivate::retrieveAncestors won't work (We have to figure out a way of fixing this, I have a patch and an idea we have to talk about it)
  • Activating resources when added (When a new resource is adding for example in AddressBook, the user will have to "check it" manually.
  • Try to improve KMail user perception by fine-tunning when and how we FETCH
  • Investigate if we can use accounts-sso instead of doing our own thing

DFaure (remotely)

I plan to implement some sort of incremental saving in ChangeRecorder to speed up operations affecting a large number of items. If there's still time after that, I'll ask for input on how to fix my other pet peeves:

  • Some sent mails have "Date: Unknown" (and others are 2 hours in the future)
  • Debugging mixedmaildir ending up with "MySQL server has gone away"
  • Plans for more parallelism in resources, for better reactivity to user actions

  • Social Feed (lots of stuff)
  • New Address Book (+metacontacts a bit)
