I would be interested in seeing tdepim stabilized and brought up to modern
standards.  I was the last one to make any major changes to that codebase,
adding carddav/caldav support, which unfortunately has bitrotted some over
the years due to general lack of interest.

As I don't generally use / sync mobile devices for various security and
privacy reasons I don't know what would need to be done to get this
working correctly.  What is your general use case?
