I'm happy to announce Aurélien and Andrew both passed the final
evaluation for their GSoC.  Join me in congratulating them :)

See their code in action:

Aurélien's Org-sync:
  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbj6-j0teCY

Andrew's Org Merge driver (put your own favorite music):
  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbaaFmoEfGw

If you want to test the code:

  ~$ git clone git://orgmode.org/org-sync.git
  ~$ git clone git://orgmode.org/org-merge-driver.git

I'm really glad they went so far in these projects, despite
the fact that I could not support them as much as I wanted.

Here are some notes they shared with me about their project,
don't hesitate to pick up some news and ask questions.

Enjoy!

Org-sync -- Use online bugtrackers from Emacs with Org-mode
===========================================================

Org-sync uses a new parser for Org documents and provides a generic
interface to add new backends.

Tutorial, code, screencast (demo) and documentation available at
[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/gsoc2012/student-projects/org-sync/]

Org-sync
--------

What works:
- cache system to prevent fetching everything everytime
- conflict resolution
- synchronization

What doesn't:
- no bugzilla, google code, google task and toodledoo backends
- no conversion from online service markup to org syntax.

Github
------
What works:
- add new bugs
- change status, description, title, etc
- change/create/remove tags

What doesn't:
- milestones ignored

Bitbucket
---------
What works:
- delete/add new bugs
- change status, description, title, type, etc

What doesn't:
- components, versions, milestones ignored

Redmine
-------
What works:
- delete/add new bugs
- change title and description

What doesn't:
- almost every other field is ignored
- not tested very well

Remember the milk
-----------------
What works:
- import existing tasks

What doesn't:
- synchronization not implemented

Org-Merge Driver -- Merge Org Mode documents
============================================

The project webpage is available at:
[http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/gsoc2012/student-projects/git-merge-tool/index.html]
There is small (soundless) demonstration here:
[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbaaFmoEfGw]

What Works
----------

- Parsing Org files into data structures
- A system for matching and merging arbitrary lists of data
- Element movement detection
- A system for supporting new types of element
- A testing framework, and a number of tests

Headings
~~~~~~~~

- recognize and merge priority and stat cookies
- recognize and merge TODO states
- recognize and merge TAGS
- support movement detection of UID'ed headings

Text
~~~~

- Merge text blocks using a line-by-line merge strategy

Properties
~~~~~~~~~~

- Recognize properties in a property drawer
- Properly deal with value updates

What doesn't work
-----------------

- Does not support more encodings than UTF-8
- Some movement updates will give unexpected results

Possible Future Features
------------------------

- Able to specify different merge software for different types of blocks
- Footnotes support
- Date Tree support

Aurélien and Andrew, Congratulations on successfully completing your
GSoC, and the wonderful projects!

Congrats to both of you on successfully completing these projects.

Having watched the videos and played around with the merge driver
locally these look like great additions to the Org-mode ecosystem.  I
hope these tools both receive publicity outside of the Org-mode mailing
list.

Ideally the gnu project will publish an announcement of successful GSOC
projects.  In addition it may be worthwhile to create pages for each
project on the Emacs Wiki [1] and to add announcements to the front page
of the orgmode.org site.

Also releasing Org-sync as an ELPA package [2] could increase its
visibility and user base.

Cheers and thanks for the excellent contributions!

     The following has the best documentation I've found on how to
     bundle an ELPA package (just ignore the Marmalade-specific parts).

Yes that's a good idea, I will look into it.

I'm fairly excited about the Org merge driver. It seems like a lot of
the conflicts I get in merging my work and home repositories are
things that a syntax-aware merge tool would handle correctly. I'm
excited to see that it also works with Mercurial!

Flipping awesome video. I don't really edit from multiple locations,
but I can see how this will help tremendously with org-mode
collaboration.

Thanks for posting!
John

I'm more and more thinking of revamping the website, and yes, 
the GSoC projects should be easily accessible from the front page.

+100!

That's awesome! Big kudos to them!

I can see how the merge driver could be the holy grail of using org as an
effective project manager (issue/bug/project/task tracker) and then
blurring the line between "the shared list" and personal todo lists. Oh
boy, orgmode is so freaking awesome.

And of course, org-sync would come in handy to interface with other
services either as a way to adapt it to the existing infrastructure or to
use the web GUIs while still allowing programmers to just use plain org
files as an way to manage their tasks.

Cheers!

- Marcelo.
