Re: Windows Live SkyDrive support


My personal opinion: dealing with Microsoft protocols is an unglorious
fight. You do a hard job trying to make your application to work, then
Microsoft update the software and change the protocol, and you have to do
all the job again and again. People from instant messengers (Pidgin, AMSN,
Empathy, and others) know about that. Maybe you should focuse on making
Syncany to achieve a more stable status, then try to include Microsoft

Just a guess.
