Description Laurent Rineau 2006-11-28 13:28:05 UTC
Spec URL:
Libsyncml is a implementation of the SyncML protocol.

Quote from Wikipedia: "SyncML is most commonly thought of as a method to synchronize contact and calendar information between some type of handheld device and a computer (personal, or network-based service), such as between a mobile phone and a personal computer."

Note 1: This library requires wbxml2, which has been unorphaned. See bug #217180.

Note 2: I have not yet managed to build it with mock, because wbxml2 has not been pushed into rawhide. It was build successfully today. See

Note 3: libopensync-plugin-syncml will follow, blocked by bug #217150.

Can you explain how you have used mock? wbxml2 packages are not pushed in FE, 
for now.

Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-11-28 17:40:58 UTC
yes. I usually do following trick. 
Just add newly created rpms in your extras repository. I never got to use online
repository. I always created own mock environment locally as its easy for me to
add new rpms and test other packages dependent on this new rpms.

Comment 4 Laurent Rineau 2006-11-28 17:47:42 UTC
Imported and build. Build job successful.
