As of now, my previous post about People is the only explanation of what People is, and more precisely what it is supposed to be. Not to mention it is heavy and a bit messy. This one will clearly and shortly expose what you can expect from People, in the next two months. The following goals are roughly the one we plan to complete in time for our presentation at GUADEC on July:
- Let the user explicit meta contacts as an aggregation of informations from different contact sources.
- Request address books from a D-Bus service, the content of those address books being meta contacts defined as above.
- Use Google Contacts, Microsoft Live, Evolution Data Server and your phone as a contact source.
And this is pretty much it. Felipe joined us on developing backends, which is great and Ali has been working on improving the server side D-Bus support for Vala, developing the address book service. On my side, after working on the library on which will rely the address book service, I have to continue on the backends and start to think seriously about the demos.
