Hey Gleb,

It's good to see that you've done that. :) I'll have to grab the branch
and check it out. I don't have a lot of time to work on this either, but
I'll make time here and there.

Since you have search fixed, I'll continue on working on understanding
the data and storage part. I'd like to write an import
routine/plug-in/whatever for OneNote. If I can do that, then I can try
to transition to Basket and that will help me to better understand what
works and what needs help.

However, I can't completely cut over to Basket until there is some sort
of sync so I can use the same notes on multiple computers. Do you know
if there's any part of syncing already written?

Also, somewhere I saw a note that there was some QT3 code still in the
app. Do you know if that's true or if that note is out of date? If true,
it might be a good thing to finish removing that and go completely to
QT4 before they move to QT6. ;) If that note is old and the work done,
then I'm sure there's other things to work on. Writing the missing
handbook might be a good way to really get to know the app.



To answer to the last part of your mail, I migrated the basket code to the qgraphicsview/scene framework to reach two main goals:
- no more use of the Qt3 support classes (full Qt4/Kde4) to prepare a future upgrade to Qt5,
- multi platform capabilities to allow people to build and run basket on linux or windows (I wrote an old mail on the list to describe the build process).

Now that Qt5 is out, it would be the good time to upgrade to this new version...
