It has been a long time since I wrote the last diary entry but it doesn't mean I've been inactive.

I wrote a revised syntax ocaml mode for emacs which is currently in beta state, it ought to be released but I want to clean it up a little before and I don't have time because of gsynchro.

So gsynchro... I enroled in the Zaurus dev challenge to write a complete GPL-ed SyncML solution for Unix, and I'm busy working on it. I'm going to release a first non-functional snapshot so that people can see what is done and what is not. gsynchro generated interest, particulary for iSync-Zaurus compatibility on which is working kdurbin, see his homepage on http://www.hgsc.bcm.tmc.edu/~kdurbin/zsync.html. I also hope it will be adopted by GPE, see gpe.handhelds.org. As I'm focusing on SyncML synchronization I abandoned the idea to write a complete PIM solution like Vicuña, because it is wiser to contribute to GPE which exists with people working on. An interesting thing to do is to adapt GTK on a library-level for handhelds.

If you wish so, you can visit the homepage http://www.neo-rousseaux.org for more information about gsynchro as soon as tomorrow.
