A very productive KDEPIM meeting in Osnabrück

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)

Akonadi misconception #1: where is my data?

I regularly see the same misconception and fear popping up on the mailing lists, bug reports and IRC: if the Akonadi database gets corrupted, I will lose my data.

To make it clear from the beginning: the Akonadi database is NOT your MAIN data storage.
Even if it gets destroyed, removed, your data is still safe.

So what is the database?

KMail - making it more usable

KMail is one of the most important applications inside KDE, I think hardly can argue anybody about it. Everybody is using email, and even if some think that a webmail solution can be just as good, most of us still do what we did 10-15 years ago: download mail to our computer/phone/tablet and carry that around.
And for that we need a mail application.

Continiuous Integration server for KDE - Alive

Thanks to our fabulous sysadmin team KDE now has a Jenkins installation[1] that serves kdelibs (KDE/4.7), kde-runtime and kdepim* (all master).

The plan is to have this as a pilot and if that goes well expand to include all (main) modules, stable and master branches.

Continiuous Integration server for KDE(PIM) - Dead

Unfortunately my server decided to die today... I've managed to get the most important stuff up again but the Jenkins instance is toast.

That is the actual Jenkins server is alive but there is no resources for the build slave, so for all intents it's dead.

Until some kind force enables me to replace the server or it can be hosted at the EBN, no more CI for PIM.

Disabling Nepomuk in Akonadi

When I upgraded my KDE-setup to 4.7.0 I run into the problem that when starting the brand new KMail based upon Akonadi that the Nepomuk-feeder started to index my imap-folders.

Continiuous Integration server for KDE(PIM)

I'm experimenting with providing a CI (continuous integration) server for KDEPIM.

For a while I've been running a cronjob that triggers a cmake script. This script then polls the repositories for 24 hours and every time a change was detected a build was performed. The results from this was feed to http://my.cdash.org (kdepim, kdepimlibs and kdepim-runtime).
