Last weekend I've met with some of our old timer KDEPIM developers and some of the newer ones who are interested in KDEPIM or related technologies in the KDAB offices in Berlin.
Being a KDAB employee for a few years already (wow, time is passing quickly), the place was familiar, the people looked familiar. The foosball table was slightly familiar, although some players changed their dresses in order to spread confusion inside the visitor's heads. That is the only reason we've lost against locals with 5-0, 5-0.
Since so many students have already shown interest in working for KDE during this years Google Summer of Code, with some already having started to send in first drafts of their proposals, I thought I'd a bit of advertising for a specific idea. Well "my" idea :)
It has been mostly ignored so far, i.e. not getting a lot of obvious attention, probably because it is "hidden" in the KDE PIM section and not listed in one of the section that guarantee eternal fame.
After 6 years of absence, I participated again in a KDEPIM meeting, to fix some issues in Akonadi in order to improve my daily life :-)
Here's a report of what I did:
Fixed: "incomplete collection" error in mixedmailresource (bug 285973)
Fixed: mixedmaildir resource can lose email when changing message flags (bug 289428)
Fixed: Assert in imap resource when resuming work after going offline (bug 291810)
Fixed: cancelling mail check doesn't really work (two different bugs)
