Hi,

There is probably something to do using EteSync end-to-end
Cardav/Caldav FOSS program https://www.etesync.com/ : 

- android / ios client
- contacts management
- task management and task.org compatibility : 
https://blog.etesync.com/tasks-org-adds-etesync-support/
- dav bridge / radicale : 
https://blog.etesync.com/desktop-dav-bridge-a-few-improvements-and-a-radicale-dependency-issue/
- gnome support (summer 2020) 

I'm a noob in lisp/elisp but there is probably something to write to
sync org data with client of this awesome FOSS tool.  

Best
