We are making progress here in Osnabrück at the KDE PIM meeting. We had lots of interesting discussions yesterday, throwing around crazy ideas and collecting all kind of requirements for the new PIM Storage Service. During this process we also came up with a mission statement and a name for the project:
Akonadi - The PIM Storage Service
We intend to design an extensible cross-desktop storage service for PIM data and meta data providing concurrent read, write, and query access. It will provide unique desktop wide object identification and retrieval.
