Bug Description

Two hours ago someone shared something to me but for some arcane reason the e-mail never made it to my inbox. Now I'm stuck with a system where the web UI and my "Shared with me" folder on HDD are different and I can't fix that.

$ u1sync --list-shares
49b1dae9-09c9-4046-b9b5-3750b21f6d84 skydomes from John Lenton [View] [not accepted]
33c7680c-655f-4964-b558-5eecae104a04 This is a TEST from artir [View]
$

Clearly e-mail will disappear without explanation all the time, it would be nice to be able to select the non-accepted share using the web UI and the click "accept" from there. Right now, if I select the "non accepted" share and switch to the "Sharing TAB" within it's properties, then there is just a text that says "This share has been offered by John Lenton 2 hours ago, but was not accepted yet".

I would be useful if you put a "ACCEPT" button right there on that page.

Martin, Thanks for reporting this.
The web ui shoudl allow you te accept shares.
As a temporay workaround, you can accept the share using u1sdtool, e.g:

u1sdtool --accept-share=49b1dae9-09c9-4046-b9b5-3750b21f6d84

Today, the web will show all shares, accepted or not. and there is no way to remove a share or accept one. (other than claiming the token, but thats not the same sharing process)

We have to:
1- unify the way that shares are handled in the web and the server
or
2- remove share manipulation from the server.

Yes, we need a good API over the sharing model that can be used from
both places, and the protocol needs to be changed to allow sharing to an
email address.

Another one for the "share management in the web UI" pile. In other news, we plan to make share invitations show up on the desktop in the messaging indicator.
