KDE hacker Sebastian Kügler writes about Akonadi
on his blog. In the article, he describes Akonadi, looks at its current status, and its future. "Akonadi is a groupware cache that runs on the local machine, a shared data store for all your personal [information]. Akonadi offers a unified API to receive and synchronise data with groupware, email servers or other online services. Agents called "resources" are responsible for communicating with the remote service, say your email server. These resources run out-of-process and communicate via separate control and data channels with the mothership (your local Akonadi). Resources are easy to implement and can interface any data source with Akonadi, be it your local calendar file, your companies groupware, email servers or address directories, or anything else you can come up with. More on that specifically later.
