Double trouble...

...that's what my friends all call me.

Actually they don't but since I am a huge fan of Lynyrd Skynyrd and this blog entry is closely related to the previous one I am (ab-)using yet another of their song titles.

Earlier this week I got rid of the "org.kde" namespace in Akonadi's D-Bus names, e.g. org.kde.Akonadi.Resource is now called org.freedesktop.Akonadi.Resource, to emphasize that we are a cross-desktop project and that the real interaction point for interested parties are the interfaces (and the data transfer protocol), not some specific implementation like libakonad-kde.

Speaking of renaming: I am not yet quite satisfied with one of our D-Bus names, so if you have any suggestions I'd like to hear them.

To further facilitate contributions outside the KDE sphere we have requested project infrastructure on
Since this will take a while, let all any interested contributors know that getting commit access to KDE's SVN is not an arcane procedure and anyone with a proven track record on another free software project will most likely get approved quickly (I am talking about the order of minutes here).


how about org.freedesktop.Akonadi.VisualNotifications? it then falls in line with our org.kde.VisualNotifications dbus interface, that will hopefully one day become org.freedesktop.VisualNotifications

i do wonder why this isn't going through a proper notifications interface though; well, other than we don't have one done up in yet ... perhaps for the next release we could work on getting org.kde.VisualNotifications moved over to as well. (it's based somewhat on the existing galago spec, but they are completely unwilling to have any sort of dialog for improving their spec, so here we go forking)

getting knotify's interface def cleaned, standardized and up on would also be awesome, giving full control, not just this.

We should probably split the notifications part from the window parent part and just implement both in the tray app for now.
