Unlikely to happen because:
- Writing a sync service from 0 is a gigantic pain
- Akonadi is incredibly powerful and handles most of what anyone would need from a sync service
- Akonadi has a sensible and easy-to-use API that apps like Kalendar can leverage
- There is no alternative that uses KDE APIs that is under active maintenance
Not saying Akonadi doesn't have big issues, but it is a good base. It just needs more love -- love it hasn't really gotten!
@musicmatze @claucambra @rysiek The problem is funding. There haven't been developers funded on working on the internal of Kontact in years. The sponsors listed on kde.org are just barely enough to pay for the small developer meetings and a few part-time contractors working on promo and other community events.
@musicmatze @claucambra https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved/development is a good start! I personally had almost no development experience in any language other than html/css before starting contributing to KDE.
For people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS).
