Why not contribute to DC? : Of course I can... and I most probably will once I figure out how to do things - but I'm not a python coder and even though it has been fairly easy to learn it, I prefer to use the language of my choice - C++ and Qt.
Yeah but I'm getting spread thin and have really been hoping for someone to help develop or even take over maintainership of some of my applications.

At my day job I code in C++ all day and I'm slowly porting my Python projects to Qt. So don't worry about porting an example. I can probably look at what you get when you are done.

I don't cache things between runs of the application but once something is downloaded, I don't re-download unless the user requests it.

I decided not to cache things between runs because I was concerned about user perception. If they launch it, they would probably expect things to at least be up to date as of the launch and would get confused if the data is stale.

I figured/hoped that they would understand the concept of refreshing things once loaded.

Oh and about Voicemail support. With TOR I added to my GV API the ability to get the voicemail. I've been planning to make it so that Maemo would ask you to download the voicemail if you've gotten one. Contemplating this for DC what I would probably do is add a "Play" and "Save" button to the window that opens when you click a voicemail. I would hope I could have GStream stream directly from the GV site but unsure about permissions. I've been busy with some other audio apps and my Qt ports to work on this.

I'm a bit new to userland programming - most of my work has been drivers or bootloaders and my experience with user code have generally been harrowing - with the exception of QT.

Ditto. Which means I need to modify my claim that qgvdial is faster.
Unless otherwise proven, qgvdial should be at least as fast as DC.

I learnt from the best.

Voicemail is easy - GV site play link returns mp3 data (after a temporarily moved error). Save to a file and play it. Found this out the easy way - from the n900 browser if I click play, it asks to save an mp3.
Playing it directly didn't work for me through the media player nor through qtm-mediaplayer.

Since qtm-multimedia uses gstreamer as backend, it should be possible to add the gstream play to DC.

Bummer, I will not be holding my breath waiting for QT 4.6 and the qt mobility framework for N800/N810.

Thanks for the shots.

I hear ya - but there's still DC for n810.
Can't compete there.

Sounds like you are deeper into that stuff than I. I work on shared kernel code and (almost) all the user space support code.

Qt has been driving me nuts so far compared to GTK but oh well (but at least its not MFC or the other stuff I have to deal with at work).

Good luck with things and I've love some DC contributions .

I would like to offer the option on my application to place calls using your dialer. Did you create or plan to any dbus interfaces that would allow me to start the dialer passing a phone number to place a call?

I haven't planned for a dbus interface, though I have a slightly related plan to provide a contact manager backend for the qt-mobility contacts api.

Your idea is interesting in the sense that just providing a dbus api will be a good stop-gap solution.
However, the "future" for all plugins like this will almost certainly be either telepathy or qtmobility based (or both).
That doesn't mean dBus will be ignored - telepathy depends on dbus. dbus is too "low level" an API.

I'll keep it in mind when I start coalescing some classes into a plugin form.

Unable to install, incompatible application type... on my N900 with PR1.2. What next?

Ok.. I was able to reproduce this by double clicking the deb from the file manager. The application loader complains about incompatible application type.
I don't know why this happens - I'm still learning debianization.

There is a workaround: I have always installed on my n900 from xterm:
sudo gainroot ; dpkg -i qgvdial<whatever>.deb

I'll look into why the app loader barfs on my deb.
