Description Patrick Ohly 2012-07-29 18:36:00 UTC

---- Reported by patrick.ohly@intel.com 2011-10-26 12:49:44 +0000 ----

Write a backend using PBAP, the only (?) protocol supported by Android and iOS for address book access. Not very good for real syncing, but at least one-way sync should be possible.

Comment 1 Patrick Ohly 2012-10-12 13:15:33 UTC
One-way syncing works now in such a way that the local side is used as a cache: local data is only changed if different from the PBAP side.

Because PBAP does not support incremental syncing at the moment, all contacts need to be retrieved before comparing against the local cache. That comparison is done by the libsynthesis sync engine, as in any other local sync in SyncEvolution.
