Dear List Members,

for a PIM synchronization program called PISI, which we mainly develop for the 
Linux Phone Freerunner, I am currently trying to implement Evolution 
connectivity - starting up with the contacts domain.

The basic concept is to run PISI on the mobile phone Freerunner using a network 
connection tunneled over USB (all in place) and access the information from the 
EDS remotely. 
As I could not find a proper way for a remote interface to EDS (nor Python 
bindings for that) I started to access the underlaying Berkeley database for 
the contact information directly. The access is working smoothly on the local 
Desktop machine, where the EDS is running.

However, my solution to copy the file via SSH to the Freerunner; edit the 
database there and copy it back does not seem to work. I read in some forums 
already, that it might not be possible to access information from within a 
Berkeley database when it was removed from its original environment.

Could anybody please give some advice, whether
- there is a way to copy the database to another machine by keeping it working, 
- how to remotely access the EDS in Python using the proper way??

Thanks a lot in advance; best
