KDEPIM Git Resource
You can now monitor any git repository with KMail. Commits will appear as e-mails in the message list.
It will do a git fetch every 5 minutes or so.
This is still a playground project, so it has some limitations:
While not needing to depend on commitfilter.kde.org or other external notification services is great, this wasn't my primary reason for creating this resource.
I did it because we can, or rather "since KDEPIM>4.4 we can".
Thanks to the new KDEPIM architecture, the application is now really decoupled from the data and that opens us a world of possibilities.
The git resource took me only 8 hours of coding, without needing to touch a single line of KMail code, therefore not introducing any regressions.
The barrier to contribute new features to kontact has never been so low.
