mozPod Status Update

I mentioned a little while ago that I was working on mozPod, to bring iPod sync to Mozilla products. I stopped for a while because I don’t have USB 2 on my laptop, and that makes hooking an iPod up really really bad. In fact, it’s pretty much been sitting in a box since November (yea, that’s bad). Well I ordered a USB 2 Card for my laptop the other day. It shipped, so I should get it in a few days. But it will be another few days until I get a protective case for my iPod, so I won’t be taking it with me, so I’ll only be doing a tiny bit of hacking.

Oh yea, the reporter tool has been consuming a ton of the time I devote to open source work. So as that starts to slow down a bit, mozPod gets a little more time.

Now if anyone wants to write some synchronization code, feel free to do so. 😉

Update [12-26-2005]: It’s out, and available here.

Recently some people at Mozilla have been asking for more help and I have decided to volunteer. One of the goals for Mozilla 2.0 is some support for sync’ing with devices.

One of the most recognizable portable devices next to cellphones is the IPOD. Mozilla support for sync’ing to the IPOD would be fantastic! Is there any chance you could tell me first,

1) What license do you intend to release your work under?
2) What have you done so far, what needs to be done?
3) An estimated release date by quarter, say q3 ’05, q1 ’06?
4) What language are you developing the tool in?

thank you for your time and effort.
