Hi everyone,

Sorry for top-posting, but I'm on an Outlook Web Access client, and it doesn't do quoting.

This is just a reminder that this coming Monday the 10th of October we have another CalDAV/CardDAV Contributor Meeting at 0900 UTC.  The agenda can be found: https://sailfishos.org/wiki/CalDAV_and_CardDAV_Community_Contributions#10.2F10.2F2016_Meeting

Everyone is welcome to attend, even if you are unable to actively contribute at this time.

Some highlights from the last month of collaboration:
 - we have a test VM set up in the Mer infra, plan is to install CalDAV/CardDAV services on it ASAP but first we need to sort out authentication / logins.
 - I've written a unit test framework for CardDAV to easily allow adding unit tests for parsing server responses
 - Damien Caliste has started writing a unit test framework for CalDAV, and he has also investigated a variety of CalDAV bugs which are proving to be quite tricky.

See you at the meeting on Monday :-)

Best regards,

Hi everyone,

During the recent Sailfish OS Community Meeting, I raised the topic of CalDAV/CardDAV sync plugins for discussion.  These plugins provide vital functionality, but due to the complexity of the space (e.g., dozens of different server implementations, each with slightly different behaviour) coupled with resource limitations in Jolla, there have always been issues with them.  I asked the community if there would be anyone interested in contributing in some way, and the response was fantastic!

As a result, I have created the following wiki page: https://sailfishos.org/wiki/CalDAV_and_CardDAV_Community_Contributions.  Please note that currently that SFOS wiki is not able to be edited by community members (we're still trying to figure out how to create a proper review process for edits, and also whether or not it makes sense to provide single-sign-on between Mer and SFOS wiki, etc) but if you have any changes you'd like to make, please send them to me and I can publish them there.

Also, I would like to organise a kick-off meeting in #mer-meeting on Freenode IRC this coming Monday the 12th of September at 0900 UTC (which is 7 pm Australian Eastern Standard Time, if that helps anyone else ;-)

The agenda can be found in the wiki page.

Everyone is welcome and invited to attend, even if you cannot volunteer to help at this point in time.

If you cannot make it, don't worry, I will attach minutes from the meeting to the wiki page :-)

Best regards,
Chris Adams.
