Description Maxxer 2007-03-28 12:57:44 UTC
Conduit is a synchronization solution for GNOME which allows the user to take their emails, files, bookmarks, and any other type of personal information and synchronize that data with another computer, an online service, or even another electronic device.

Conduit manages the synchronization and conversion of data into other formats. For example, conduit allows you to;

    * Synchronize your tomboy notes to a file on a remote computer
    * Synchronize your emails to your mobile phone
    * Synchronize your bookmarks to delicious, gmail, or even your own webserver
    * and many more... 

Any combination you can imagine, Conduit will take care of the conversion and synchronization.

I'll add it when evo support is available.  It's too early now.

Ebuild for version 0.3.0

Works for me, but I dont have too much experiences with casting ebuilds.
Comment 4 Gunther Cronenberg 2007-05-14 18:08:13 UTC
This version should also be depending on Bug 148532 - dev-python/vobject.
Comment 5 Saleem Abdulrasool (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-05-22 15:48:07 UTC
FYI, I have all the necessary ebuilds in my overlay at git://
Comment 6 teknux 2007-05-29 13:16:23 UTC
successfully installed, but to start i have modified a file:

/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/conduit/ @ line 14:

-import xml.dom.ext
+import xml.dom

any suggestion about it?
Comment 7 Claes Mogren 2007-08-16 12:01:17 UTC
Conduit 0.3.2 is out, with Evolution support:
Comment 8 Claes Mogren 2007-08-21 05:50:36 UTC

ebuild for dev-python/evolution-python-0.0.3 to support evolution as data sink and source in conduit.
Comment 11 Claes Mogren 2007-09-05 06:18:54 UTC
Thanks Jürgen! I've installed the ebuild (without the evolution support) on ~amd64 and everything seems to work.

Updated gnome-extra/conduit/conduit-0.3.3.ebuild

Ebuild should also depend on dev-python/pyxml; you can compile the program fine but not run it without the xml bindings (xml.dom.ext in particular). Version included is >= 0.8.4, only because thats as far back as I can test it with my tree; older versions may work. Updated ebuild attached (also, version name should be 0.3.3, rather than 0.0.3, probably just a typo).
Comment 13 Priit Laes (IRC: plaes) 2007-12-20 16:28:31 UTC
Few notes:
  1) 0.3.4 is out (but building it fails) ;)
  2) evolution stuff has gone MIA
  3) 0.3.4 has plugins for eog and nautilus (USE gnome?), but it needs patches, as defaults aren't sane enough...
if test "x$with_nautilus_extension_dir" = "x" ; then

There might be more issues, but as you can see, this project isn't yet mature enough :(

Ebuild for version 0.3.5

USE flags aviable are:
- nautils = --enable-nautilus-extension
- eog = --enable-eog-plugin

Please notice I'm not a developer, so ebuild should be buggy!

conduit-0.3.6 released
Comment 18 Rémi Cardona (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-17 11:08:41 UTC
Alex, conduit 0.3.6 was released less than 12 hours ago ... there's absolutely _no_ need to remind us. We already know, there are mailing lists. Had you posted your message with something actually useful like "the ebuild for 0.3.5 works fine for 0.3.6" then I would have said nothing.

Please don't do that again. Thanks

I believe this ebuild wrongly relies on /usr/bin/true
My system has /bin/true and I think that is the correct location.  Had to create a temporary symlink to allow compilation to complete.

Thanks for the tip, that helped me;)
Comment 37 Christopher Robin Elmersson 2008-10-01 10:54:23 UTC
New version 0.3.14 out - the ebuild works by just renaming it (the ln -s usr/bin/true /bin/true still needed though).

Thanks for the update. There is a small typo. Change

$(...) is bash syntax for executing the contained command.

The project looks rather dead nowadays.

No new release in years, no activity on mailing list either.
