Default Bug#505878: ITP: libfunambol-cpp-client-api -- cross-platform syncml client stack

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: David Bremner <bremner@unb.ca>


* Package name : libfunambol-cpp-client-api
Version : syncevolution-0.8.1
Upstream Author : Funambol Inc.
* URL : http://core.forge.funambol.org
* License : AGPL
Programming Lang: C++
Description : cross-platform syncml client stack

Long description, from web site, needs improvement:
---------------------------------------------------

This SDK allows to integrate a syncml stack in a C++ application on a
variety of platforms. Currently, Windows, WinMobile and Linux are
actively supported, but you can easily build it on other Unixes or other
mobile/embedded platforms.

Comments on Licensing:
----------------------

Although there continues to be a certain amount of debate about the AGPL,
there is at least one [1] AGPL package in main, so for the moment I am going
ahead on the assumption that ftp-master will let it in.

Comments on upstream sources:
-----------------------------

Patrick Ohly maintains a git repo with the official sources, plus some patches.
at

http://github.com/pohly/funambol-cpp-client-api/tree/master

Since my main goal is to get Patrick's Syncevolution packaged, I will
probably use Patrick's git repo as upstream. Alternatively I could
essentially duplicate Patrick's efforts by starting with pristine
upstream and applying the same set of patches. Let me know if people have
ideas about the "right way" to proceed.
