The following list contains the things which need to be done for Akonadi.

Note: The person noted in the "Contact" column is not necessarily the one implementing that feature, but the one who can tell you what to do and how to help, i.e. you can also contribute to those tasks ;-)

There is also a more detailed page about bugs and missing features of things that are currently ported here.

DONE Mail Filter Agent Andras <Tobias, Andras>

KDE 4.9 / Akonadi 1.8

KDE 4.10 / Akonadi 1.9

bugfixes and optimizations only

KDE 4.11 / Akonadi 1.10

Status Item Description Contact
DONE Batch Notifications <Dan>

KDE 4.12 / Akonadi 1.11

Status Item Description Contact
IN PROGRESS Server-Side Change notification filtering <Dan>
TO DO Server-Side Change recording <Dan>

Post KDE 4.12 / Akonadi 1.11

This stuff is currently not considered for 4.5 due to lack of resources. Of course it will be added nevertheless if someone implements it. The list is completely unsorted.

Status Item Description Contact
TO DO Error reporting Akonadi::Job basically has only one error code: Unknown <Tobias>
IN PROGRESS Port KNotes File resource, serializer plugin, KNotes application, Kontact plugin [mailto: <>]
TO DO Batch job to retrieve a set of items from Akonadi Those items don't belong to the same collection, rather they are located in different collections [mailto: <>]
TO DO CollectionFetchJob/ItemFetchJob should be able to retrieve entities by flags/mimetype

This is problematic with change notifications, as they have to know about the filtering with the \Seen flag as well. This type of filtering would be possible with full Nepomuk interface though. We don't want yet another query language here. The plan is to fix the nepomuk agent and use that as semi-public interface for now.

[mailto: <>]
TO DO Sync collection tree after creating setting up a resource see AgentInstanceCreateJob [mailto: <>]
TO DO Support standard commands for QUndo framework [mailto: <>]
TO DO Conflict detection in resources See Osnabrueck meeting notes for details [mailto: <>]
TO DO Action framework see below [mailto: <>]
IN PROGRESS Fix API docs The libakonadi move as well as the huge API changes following it broke lots of the docs technical and content-wise, see below <Tobias>
TO DO Alternative for Akonadi::ResourceBase Not using the scheduler to avoid the serialization of operations, see RSS resource. (This will get very complicated. Maybe use a proxy ResourceBase for this, which is thread-pooled?) [mailto: <>]

Resources, Agents and others

Status Item Description Contact
TO DO Expire Agent [mailto: <>]
IN PROGRESS RSS Resource in akregator_port branch (Details) <Frank>
TO DO History resource [mailto: <>]
