People from KDE and OpenGroupware are trying to create an standard for 
synchronizing any (free) groupware server with any client. It's called 
GroupDav and there are plugins (in development) for Evolution and 
Kde-PIM (Kontact). It's based en WebDAV. It will be great to make 
possible to access to the data of Kronolith, MNemo, Nag, Turba, etc. 
through a GroupDAV interface (synchronization capabilities with Gnome, 
KDE, Palm, etc.).

So, why are people reinventing SyncML?

Jan Schneider <jan@horde.org> 2005-01-23 10:02:37
Good question. But we want to add WebDAV support anyway, if it isn't 
much work to extend this interface, we should consider it.

Chuck Hagenbuch <chuck@horde.org> 2005-02-15 21:55:23
So, is this related to CalDAV 
(http://ietfreport.isoc.org/idref/draft-dusseault-caldav/) at all, or 
is it completely different?

Chuck Hagenbuch <chuck@horde.org> 2006-12-20 20:52:58
Does GroupDAV still have enough clients behind it that we want to support it?

Jan Schneider <jan@horde.org> 2006-12-20 21:52:50
Yes. And if we have CalDAV support, we almost (if not completely) have 
GroupDAV anyway.

Chuck Hagenbuch <chuck@horde.org> 2007-06-15 20:02:33
Jan, could you lay out a brief explanation of what work would be 
needed to accomplish this, both on a framework and a per-application 
basis, so that I can better understand it and hopefully help out?

Jan Schneider <jan@horde.org> 2007-10-01 23:55:09
I have not enough free time to warrant working on this without being 
paid at the moment, so this is going to be stalled for Horde 4 or 
later Horde 3.2 versions.

Hey,

what's the status of DAV integration? I am currently stuck to 
egroupware since I want to synchronize my mobile AND use KDE's Kontact 
as front end. I didn't manage to get xml-rpc either.



Best regards



Fritz

WebDAV works fine, CalDAV is being added soon. GroupDAV is not planned 
at the moment.

Chuck Hagenbuch <chuck@horde.org> 2008-11-16 16:50:41
GroupDAV looks a bit dormant, if not dead - is this still worth 
keeping around? We can always have a new, un-stalled ticket if it 
becomes worth it later.

Jan Schneider <jan@horde.org> 2008-11-17 00:28:05
GroupDAV is theoretically a subset of CalDAV, so we should be able to 
close this ticket once we have that. But we should at least test it 
with GroupDAV clients.

fritz@praus.at 2008-11-19 17:46:00
If there's a testing version available I would be glad to evaluate it 
if you need help.



Regards

Fritz
