Needs research

  • Maildir as storage for RSS articles (code in kdepim/maildir). How reliably will it work on Windows:
 - the ":" issue
 - atomacity of hardlinking/unlinking, 
   see Projects/PIM/MS_Windows#Maildir_implementation_in_KMail
  • libsyndication doesn't provide progress when loading a feed, check whether it's possible to get progress from KIO _at all_
  • What are possible settings for the resource?
  • Read up on OPML/RSS/Atom spec (+ on the itunes podcast extension so we can set appropriate attributes; other extensions?)
  • Nepomuk feeder agent: feed ontology? current state of fulltext search support?

Current todo

  • React on changes made to collections (added/changed/removed)
  • Don't forget about status and error messages!
  • Unit tests
  • Define possible API for managing feeds

Bugs to track down

  • aboutToQuit() is not called when manually removing the resource via akonadiconsole (tracked down). aboutToQuit() is called from within AgentBase::quit() so it's invoked only in the first case:
    • When removing a resource via akonadiconsole the calling sequence is:
      • AgentManager::removeInstance(instance)
      • org::freedesktop::Akonadi::AgentManager::removeAgentInstance(id) - via D-Bus
      • org::freedesktop::Akonadi::Agent::Control::cleanup() - via D-Bus
    • When removing a resource at 'akonadictl stop' the calling sequence is:
      • org::freedesktop::Akonadi::AgentManager::~AgentManager() - from akonadictl
      • org::freedesktop::Akonadi::AgentManager::AgentManager::cleanup()
      • org::freedesktop::Akonadi::Agent::Control::quit() - via D-Bus for every agent
  • clicking on 'Save' in akonadiconsole causes crashes
  • possibility to add a resource by double-clicking in akonadiconsole (will make my life _much_ easier)
