I'm totally fed up with all those incompatible agenda/address storage formats :!: :twisted:
So I'm going to write a backend that takes data from a named pipe, scans the format, translates it and puts it in a MySQL database :!:
Or is there such a thing already :?: :roll:

With this concept, I hope to achieve that I can take whatever pim-prog, and save its data to the pipe.

Why?
I'm currently using that ugly piece of korganizer, in eager anticipation of gnome2-pim, since obsoletion of gnomecard. I might want to check out Rubrica2 too. I don't want to convert my data every time, it would be better off in a database anyway.

I foresee problems when just saving data to a named pipe because of file-ops the program might want to do with it... to this end I might have to hack some export-stuff in the pim-programs, hope that's not to big a problem :roll:

Any suggestions/tips/references are welcome :!:

I'm in the middle of something at the moment which does exactly this with vcards and vcalendars, it also manages multiple users with multiple devices/programs. I'm waiting until its at alpha test stage before I make it publically available, but if you want I can email you the current source and docs.

Thanks for the offer :) Though it looks like the next 2 weeks (at least) I'll be out of time, so I might ask you later :wink: (or maybe see the alpha :) )
