Please, feel free to announce releases and other important changes to
Conboy on this list whenever you like. This should make it easier for
us to collaborate, and to keep everybody informed.

As we are working on Tomboy online sync support, I am doing my best to
keep a clean separation between handling web requests/responses,
dealing with our REST API , and hooking it all into Tomboy's
existing sync infrastructure . I'm doing the web sync add-in code
as MIT/X11 to increase reuse in popular desktop projects that can't
use LGPL code. Hopefully this separation will make it easier for you
to port it to Conboy.
We intend to rework a lot of our sync infrastructure to be cleaner and
support automatic background sync, so hopefully that will be done (and
useful to you) by the time you get around to implementing sync in
Conboy, so that you have a better example to follow.

This sounds great, Cornelius. Thanks for helping to get Tomboy notes
out to Maemo users.
Congrats on the release,
