 Hello,
 
 I want to help in sanitizing the overlay and bring the ebuilds into
 portage. We can see that next weekend if you have the time.
 
 Regards,

Hi  thanks,

contact the SynCE devs on sourceforge or via
synce-de...@lists.sourceforge.net to get write access, I'm sure they
would be pleased.

If the current version is in the tree, then most of the overlay can be
removed, with perhaps the exception of synce-kpm and synce-gnome.

I won't be around the next couple of weekends but I'm happy to respond
to emails when I can, if I can help.

  this means it won't die in Gentoo :)
  
  Massive thanks to everyone who helped with my bad ebuild programming and

  The original testing overlay remains here[2] for anyone who wants to

  If there are any questions please cc me directly as I may not be on the

 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.
