In zim 0.2x the "slow fs" option was intended to do that. Need to fix that option for zim 0.4x and will rename it to something like "remote notebook" or "shared notebook". > Another nice idea would be a plugin detecting file conflits of > Dropbox/Ubuntu One and allowing to deal with them.

(And considering to raise that, as we get in more donations and no bounties have been claimed so far...) Bounties are here: http://zim-wiki.org/contribute.html dev notes here: http://www.zim-wiki.org/wiki/doku.php?id=resolving_syncing_conflicts First step is probably to document the file naming scheme used by Dropbox/Ubuntu One for conflicts and see if we can support both at once, or need some option to switch schemes.
