Bug Description

Rationale for dropping Ubuntu changes:

The python build process got fixed in Debian and now supports multiple python versions, so the current Ubuntu hardcoding is no longer necessary. Further, .a/.la files for the python extensions are no longer shipped. No other Ubuntu changes were present.


opensync (0.22-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * debian/libopensync0-dev.install: Do not install python stuff.
  * debian/control (Standards-Version): Bump to 3.7.3.
  * debian/control: Replaced ${Source:Version} with ${binary:Version}.

Rationale for new upstream version:

opensync-0.19 has been unmaintained upstream for years now and should not get shipped in a LTS release. opensync-0.22 has been released last autumn and is the currently recommended version by upstream for distributions to include, while the opensync-0.3x is still considered experimental and is discouraged from packaging by upstream. Opensync-0.22 works fine with kitchensync (universe) and reasonably well with multisync0.90 and msynctool (both universe as well). Even though no support for Windows Mobile or Blackberry devices is available in hardy, shipping opensync-0.22 (and the accompayning plugins in universe) will give hardy (KDE) users a reasonable syncing experience, compared to the last couple of Ubuntu releases.

Conducted testing:

The opensync_0.22-2 package has been made available as hardy packages (together with the plugins and multisync-gui) as PPA at

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/debian-opensync/ubuntu hardy main

for several weeks. User testing has been unconclusive (some success reports, one failure report). I have verified that kitchensync still works after upgrading to opensync-0.22. Partial upgrades have not been extensively tested I believe.

If this FFE is getting accepted, FFEs for the plugins in universe should get issued accordingly.

Diffstat output (136 files changed, 10434 insertions(+), 34491 deletions(-)) is being attached.

I'm inclined to ok this in spite of the lateness of the change, but for the plugins we also need sign-off from motu-release; subscribing them now.

Do you have a list of the affected source packages for the plugins?

Luke Yelavich (themuso) wrote :

+1 from me. I have a mobile that doesn't work with 0.19, so syncing with it for me would be something I'd like.

the 1ubuntu1 of -kdepim was a false-positive, this should've really been -1build1. Synced now:

Michael Banck (mbanck) wrote :

For google-calendar, it is probably best to take the 1-line patch from 0.19-2ubuntu3; basing it on 0.22-4 (0.22-5 should be disregarded, it was a bogus/wrong upload).

The real fix appears to be a 3-line port to python-4suite-xml, however an upstream bug in python-4suite-xml makes that impossible for hardy.

Michael Banck (mbanck) wrote :

Turned it was not an upstream bug in 4suite, John L. Clark completed the port to 4suite (see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=468601#32 ), so syncing (or merging) opensync-plugin-google-calendar_0.22-6 (just uploaded containing John's patch) should work as well.
