01:55 am - Call for Barry testers
I just bumped app-pda/barry in the tree to version 0.17.1. This was a major ebuild rewrite that should fix a bunch of outstanding issues. Unfortunately I won't have access to my Blackberry until I go back to work next month so I was unable to do much in the way of runtime testing.

If you're a Barry user please give the new version a try and file bugs for any problems you run into. I'm not sure the udev rules are correct and have no idea how the tethering/pppd stuff works. The pppd files are just installed into /usr/share/doc for now since I'm not 100% sure where the proper place for them is. There is also a new plugin for opensync that could use some testing.

For more info on using Barry there is some good documentation at http://www.netdirect.ca/software/packages/barry

Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!
