Bug#505878: ITP: libfunambol-cpp-client-api -- cross-platform syncml client stack

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: David Bremner <bremner@unb.ca>

* Package name    : libfunambol-cpp-client-api
  Version         : syncevolution-0.8.1
  Upstream Author : Funambol Inc.
* URL             : http://core.forge.funambol.org
* License         : AGPL
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : cross-platform syncml client stack

Long description, from web site, needs improvement:

This SDK allows to integrate a syncml stack in a C++ application on a
variety of platforms. Currently, Windows, WinMobile and Linux are
actively supported, but you can easily build it on other Unixes or other
mobile/embedded platforms.

Comments on Licensing:

Although there continues to be a certain amount of debate about the AGPL, 
there is at least one [1] AGPL package in main, so for the moment I am going 
ahead on the assumption that ftp-master will let it in.

Comments on upstream sources:

Patrick Ohly maintains a git repo with the official sources, plus some patches.


Since my main goal is to get Patrick's Syncevolution packaged, I will
probably use Patrick's git repo as upstream. Alternatively I could
essentially duplicate Patrick's efforts by starting with pristine
upstream and applying the same set of patches.  Let me know if people have 
ideas about the "right way" to proceed.
