I am at the basysKom GmbH offices in Darmstadt, attending a Decibel meeting.
The goal of the meeting is to discuss various requirements and design decisions around Decibel, an architecture to make chat and phone communication universally available to desktop applications. Akonadi, the extensible cross-desktop storage service for PIM data and meta data. And Khalkhi, a plugin-based contact framework.
Attending the meeting are: Will Stephenson (Kopete), Friedrich (Khalkhi author), Volker Krause (Akonadi developer), Tobias Hunger (Decibel), Stanislav Karchebny (Skype), Dominik Haumann (Kate), and myself , trying to get back on KDE track, or at least follow the track.
Will post updates later.
