Device Sync in 3.x: Brainstorming for User Stories and Volunteers

Several users have - in various channels - complained about the missing support for device synchronization in gPodder 3.x. As I've mentioned in the original announcement, it's not because we don't want to have that feature in gPodder (we do!), but rather the reason for it was that the way it was implemented in 2.x was not as good as it could be, and it was hard to maintain (and also nobody of the core developers tested the iPod and MTP variants for a long time, with several bug reports staying open because nobody was able to test/reproduce or otherwise deal with them).

There is now a Wiki page where I would invite all users interested in getting device sync back into 3.x to add their user stories, maybe add themselves as volunteers (for either testing, development or documentation) and help us get a good idea of how the perfect device sync integration should look like:

Thanks for your support :)


  1. I could volunteer for that, as a bug hunter!

  2. What's the progress on this as the above post goes back to 2011 & the blog update on ipod support is May 2013.
    Sould be good to have a further update and ETA.
