This is mostly directed at dhns, I suppose, as he seems to be the one most actively developing a sync solution for the Z.http://sourceforge.net/projects/zsrep/
The Zaurus Synchronization Repository is an active project with an OS X port.
Now that Apple has opened up the iSync API a bit in Tiger, is there any chance of seeing, say, my SL-6000 pop up in the iSync device menu? I really, really want to press one button and have my Z sync down to the last detail with iCal and Address Book (maybe Stickies too), bypassing Qtopia Desktop alotgether.
It seems like Apple should've made this possible, but my first pass at the developer's documentation left me looking for more, or at least an example. Seems like they ought to have a nice wrapper for adding a new device to iSync along with docs on how to do this, but I didn't find it on a first pass. I just haven't had a lot of time to look at the docs.
Of course, it would be really great to see the KDE/Pim suite supported directly -- perhaps even instead of Sharp's DTM, as you can actually work with the KDE/Pim developers, and most every Z user has by now switched to this much more full-featured PIM suite.
I haven't switched, and I really wouldn't have any interest in this. To each their own though.
Whaddaya say? Is there any hope for this? Am I the only one who isn't happy with the existing options?
In an ideal world, we'd have one or even two really active open source projects going on for this, but reality is, that it's a couple developers with projects putting in whatever time they have. I'd like to help out with the Zaurus Synchronization Repository project, but I just don't think I have any time for that at the moment.
