Package: coldsync
Version: 2.3.1+20020318-1
Severity: normal

In the man page of coldsync:

     Legal values are default, full, simple, and net.  If omitted, the
	 protocol option defaults to default.  Most of the time, default does the
	 right thing. The main exception is for Palm m50x-es with USB cradles.
	 Under Linux, use:

	       listen serial {
				protocol: simple;

But it is not true. I could not sync with my m505.

In README.usb of coldsync
	The correct way to use it with coldsync is with a
	proper listen serial block, just like this one:
	listen serial "linux-usb" {
		protocol: net;
		device: /dev/ttyUSB1;

Therefore, the 'simple' in the man page should be changed to 'net'.

I have succeeded to sync by change the keyword. But it takes 2 hours to
find the correct way, due to the mistake of the document. :-(

The coldsync package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/352615 . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
