==Introduction==
+
{{Warning| The Telepathy-On-KDE project pages have moved to [http://community.kde.org/Real-Time_Communication_and_Collaboration community.kde.org/Telepathy]}}
[http://telepathy.freedesktop.org The Telepathy framework] is a DBus specification which provides a cross-desktop and cross-protocol abstraction layer for instant messaging, voice/video over IP and collaborative applications. See the [http://telepathy.freedesktop.org Telepathy web site] for more information about Telepathy itself.
+
 
+
This project is focused on integrating Telepathy with KDE. Our high-level aims are the following:
+
* to provide a unified instant messaging and voice/video communication framework within KDE, which integrates throughout the desktop experience.
+
* to provide collaborative features in applications which fit seemlessly into the KDE platform
+
* to provide the infrastructure within KDE necessary to acheive the above two, using cross-desktop specifications and implementations wherever possible.
+
 
+
==Infrastructure==
+
This section contains details of all the Telepathy-in-KDE infrastructure components, and their statuses.
+
 
+
===Telepathy Integration Daemon===
+
This is a small light-weight daemon that monitors the Telepathy Account Manager and keeps ensures that all Accounts are recorded in Nepomuk as NCO:Contact instances of "myself" and that they each have a Telepathy Contacts Akonadi Resource instance.
+
 
+
It could possibly be made into a KDED module, but I'm not sure if this is a good idea. [[User:Grundleborg|Grundleborg]]
+
 
+
====Status====
+
The bare bones are implemented, but the Nepomuk part is blocking on standardising the Ontologies for telepathy specific stuff and how to access the "myself" PIMO:Person through Nepomuk. The Akonadi part is blocking on getting the Telepathy Contacts Akonadi Resource below implemented.
+
 
+
====Source Code====
+
Source code can be found in KDE svn at:
+
<pre>
+
svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/playground/network/telepathy-integration-daemon
+
</pre>
+
[http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/playground/network/telepathy-integration-daemon websvn link].
+
 
+
===Telepathy Contacts Akonadi Resource===
+
This is an Akonadi Resource that synchronises the contacts of a Telepathy Account into Akonadi as vcards. The instances of this resource are managed by the telepathy-integration-daemon mentioned above.
+
 
+
====Status====
+
Partially implemented. Requires some Telepathy CM's to implement the org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Connection.Interface.ContactInfo.DRAFT interface to complete it, since we shouldn't try and support legacy CM's which don't support that interface.
+
 
+
====Source Code====
+
The code can be found in the KDE svn playground at the following URL:

==Problems==
+
 
+
* QtDBus doesn't have peer-to-peer DBus implemented properly - the classes are just non-functional stubs. This stops us from implementing D-tubes in KDE/Qt based Telepathy applications. Upstream bug is private in Qt Software's tracker and this is unlikely to get fixed by Qt Software, so if anyone feels like implementing it and then merging it upstream into Qt, that would be really fantastic.
