OK, I've thought about it and I think you are right. I've also thought
about other possible projects and I've came up with three smaller ones:
1. Implementing a interface to allow simple integration of new
database engines. Making it non-relational DB friendly would be
cool. Writing at least MySQL and sqlite modules.
2. Implementing multiple users and shared folders/files. Using WebDAV
ACL seems the way to go for the communication part. The
database/database interface I mentioned earlier would require some
3. Implementing versioning. There's a WebDAV extension for this
too. The database would require modifications again.
The last two items would require working in close collaboration with the
desktop client developer(s) for agreeing upon the exact implementation
So, what does everyone think?
