Pilot-QOF converts Palm databases to queriable objects.
A Palm database record is an instance of the object,
called an Entity. Objects are collated to form one data
source, called books, that can contain any number of
different objects - depending on the application
running QOF. Pilot-QOF writes selected palm data to QSF
XML offline storage and running SQL-type queries on the
live data or XML file.

Pilot-QOF currently supports the four main applications
(Expenses, Contacts, Calendar and ToDo) and work is now
progressing to support other free software Palm
databases like PCash and FreeCoins.

Intended for 10.3

Depends on pilot-link9 (0.11.8) and qof1 (0.6.1)

    pilot-link9 (0.11.8) is in Fink now (also pilot-link10).

    I couldn't find qof1 anywhere in the tracker nor in Fink. Do you know where
    that would be?

    I've given up getting packages into Fink, it takes FAR too
    long. It's taken almost a year for Fink to even respond to
    this tracker. The tracker for QOF (qof1) was closed because
    of inactivity. QOF is a SourceForge project and the CVS
    includes a fink info file from the original tracker but I've
    lost interest in using (even supporting) QOF or pilot-qof in
    Fink. I no longer even have a Fink system to test - my iBook
    is now running Debian and already has qof1 0.7.1, pilot-qof
    0.1.1 and libpisock9.

    pilot-qof has moved through 0.0.8, 0.0.9, 0.0.10 , 0.1.0 and
    0.1.1 since this tracker was posted. There seems little
    point packaging pilot-qof at 0.0.7.

    QOF itself moved from 0.6.0 through 0.6.1, 0.6.2, 0.6.3,
    0.6.4, 0.7.0 and is currently at 0.7.1 since it's tracker
    was originally opened.

    pilot-qof 0.1.1 depends on pilot-link 0.12, libpisock9 and
    qof1 0.7.1. If pilot-qof is to be packaged for Fink it
    should be at 0.1.1 not 0.0.7. It looks unlikely that Fink
    will be able to keep pace with future releases.

    People think Debian has slow release cycles, but compared to
    Fink . . . .
