np We should have all of SynCE in Portage again, except for the GNOME bits like synce-trayicon (hardcoded depend on sys-apps/hal) and the KDE bits (haven't even looked). Just by pulling synce-sync-engine as well as synce-connector the deps should get pulled in -> No need for a meta package. The overlay was, when I last checked entirely uncompatible with the packages in tree as well as has confusing amount of deprecated ebuilds. I would love if someone could wipe it clean so people stop accidentally shooting themself in the foot with it. I'll add the synce-trayicon to tree soon as upstream produces a HAL-free version of it... And it's up the KDE team to add the KDE bits if they want.
