Description of problem:
it would be great if fedora/redhat could provide compatibles
for apples mobile-me.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Well, I'd rather do an open version. :P
More seriously... standards? Docs?
hmm, i am no developer,
i do not know if these infos are usefull, just my thoughts.
the wwdc 2008 keynote adress
you can listen to Scott Forstall about the iphone 2.0 sdk (september 2008)
between 0:54-0:59 he explains the "unified push notification service" which
provides a persistent ip connection to the server. it provides 3 types of
notifications: badges?, alert sounds, textural alerts with buttons.
between 1:07-1:22 Phil Schiller gives a live demo http://me.com with safari and
docs and standards? i do not know.
i do not know how all the linux-apps are communicating between each other but
could the evolution-data-server act as a translator/proxy for MobileMe and
other linux apps?
can he push emails, contacts, calendars to evolution, thunderbird, sunbird,
openldap, postfix, dovecot, cyrus-imap, webdav, ... ?
could redhat/fedora provide a similiar service with open standards and oss?
it seems that the protocol is microsofts exchange activesync protocol via http/https
the open source push technology - zarafa_engine / z-push - could be a
possibility for future fedora relaeses.
[...] Z-push is an implementation of the ActiveSync protocol, which is used
'over-the-air' for multi platform ActiveSync devices, including Windows Mobile,
Ericsson and Nokia phones. With Z-push any groupware can be connected and synced
with these devices. [...]

- Developing own backends
- Get in touch
Z-push is an open-source application to synchronize ActiveSync compatible PDAs
and mobile phones.
It was developed and testet with the Apache Webserver and PHP.
Z-push was initially developed by Zarafa Deutschland GmbH (Germany).
Moving this upstream. For further updates, please see:
