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


---- Reported by patrick.ohly@intel.com 2010-04-07 00:10:22 +0000 ----

As discussed on the mailing list ("[SyncEvolution] auto sync"), it would be nice if D-Bus clients like sync-ui and also the command line (with --status) would be able to assure the user that automatic sync a) really is active and b) make it more obvious when it'll happen.

Jussi proposed the following API change:
> * GetAutosyncStatus() method that returns next estimated sync time
>   and possible reason/status
> * AutosyncStatusChanged-signal that is fired when estimated time or
>   reason/status changes.

Let's go for this. We need to define more aspects of it, though:
* must work also for "intelligent" auto sync (local or remote changes detected)
* must inform about all configs with auto sync, not just one

patrick,I think this bug entry contains 3 problems according to your description:
1) notify clients about automatic sync
2) intelligent auto sync
3) sync ui shows more config info about auto sync

I'd like to open 2 other bugs to address the 2 and 3 items.

This is what this issue is about.

Let's wait with opening new issues here until we have migrated the open feature requests from bugzilla.moblin.org. Perhaps there is already something about it, or we need to cross-reference with some of these issues.
