Stanislav - Thanks for your feedback about the current state of the GTK
OpenSync frontend. The Multisync0.90 branch got dropped upstream, so we decided
to switch to the new released version Multisync0.91 which is a complete
rewrite/new branch. We will try to improve the configure dialog of the new
version ASAP.

"no support for hacks required for proper sync" - OpenSync is intended to get
rid of those "features". We also fixed many known problems of buggy mobile
phones which violate against the IrMC Specification or vcal/vcard Spec.

For the IrMC Sync of OpenSync are no hacks required. Christopher has done a
great job and fixed nearly every issue. We received success reports from
people, who using IrMC mobile phones with UTF-7, UTF-8 and other ISO8859-X...
so let us now if you still have problems with the conversion of your charset.

Regarding bug 217073 - i don't see any relation of OpenSync/Multisync with a
broken bluez DBus API test script - or missing passkey agent.

Like Christopher, i can only recommend to use kitchensync in the meantime. Or
multisync 0.82 - which is not maintained upstream anymore and will get dropped
in further releases.

And don't forget to disable the synchronization of notes - there is a (known)
bug on your mobile phone.

Thanks for testing!
