[maemo-users] Status of SyncEvolution and PIM applications

I recently documented the process of syncing GPE (a very well-rounded, 
stable PIM suite) on the N800 with Evolution on the PC, step by step.  
(I had searched around and found no such specific instructions 
beforehand.)  It requires no compilation (in most cases), no use of 
Scratchbox (in all cases), and can be done without using R&D mode, 
AFAIK, so it is a good "end-user" solution.  The daily syncs are also 
handled through a GUI!

The link to the instructions is: 

There are a few minor issues with the setup, which I have documented on 
that page and plan to report to the projects soon as soon as I can tell 
which bugs go to which projects :D  You probably could try it out in 
Scratchbox (using, for instance, the INdT Maemo VMWare Appliance for 
ease of installation), but the risk to your device is very low.

Hope this helps!  If you find any parts of that tutorial that need 
corrections, or if you notice additional issues with the system, please 
let me know and file a bug with the upstream projects, if applicable.
