Overview

PIM storage describes a means of storing data in an extensible and cross-referencable way.

Goals & Objectives

  • Method to exchange data between all applications completely transparent
  • Personal data security / encryption
  • Great bidirectional sync of personal data
  • Easy method for backup (ideally this should be automatic)
  • Real-time incremental search
  • Autocomplete of personal data information

Use Cases

  • I would like to attach arbitrary data to a contact (AKA: custom fields)
  • I would like some level of integration with automatic switching of profiles. For example, it would be cool to automatically backup my personal data to my desktop PC when I get home.
  • I want to type the first few numbers of a phone number and be presented a list of matching contacts.
  • I want to add a contact to multiple groups (AKA: categories)

Constraints

(TBD)

Implementation Recommendations

  • This will be based on Embedded EDS, this way we will can directly use Evolution data, get OpenSync for free, and eventually be able to talk to a Microsoft Exchange Server using the Novell Connector.

Interactions

  • Embedded EDS needs libglade2, dbus, and libdb.

Unresolved Issues

  • Synchronizing w/ Outlook
  • Synchronizing w/ MacOS X
  • Synchronizing w/ Google services

Possible solutions:

  • mokod - An OpenMoko daemon to run on host operating systems

Questions and Answers

(None)
