Provide capability for handheld to overwrite the desktop or desktop to handheld
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030925 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030925 Standard Palm Desktop Conduits allow the user to select between 3 modes: 1. Sync (already implemented) 2. Handheld overwrites desktop 3. Desktop overwrites handheld 2 & 3 are not implemented with Palm Sync on SeaMonkey, and won't make initial builds for Thunderbird. The conduit should be enhanced to provide this functionality. It is good for the user, as a mistake on either end could be catastrophic for the data. The ability to overwrite gives the user final say on how the sync should be conducted. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:

taking. Is this only in the case of conflicts between updates on the desktop and updates on the palm, or does it say we only do a one-way sync? The Palm documentation implies it's just a one-way sync so that's what I'm going to assume for now.

It's one way sync. Override all. So I can perform a "backup" either way, rather than a "sync".

this patch needs some more testing, but it seems to work
David, If you would like help testing, just let me know. I'm not setup here to compile yet, so I will need a binary.
fix checked in. If you can get palmsync from a daily windows mozilla build, you can test it that way. Otherwise, I'll have to build an xpi.

Unless it's uber-important that tests be against the trunk, I'd perfer to go test on 1.6 with an XPI if you have one, since it's stable,and I use it full time. I'd perfer testing in a real-life setting (rather than try a few times with test data). But either way, need some testing, just let me know.
Unfortunately, it needs to be tested against the trunk. I made some corresponding changes to the AB code that are required.
Alright. I'll give it a spin with tomorrow morning's build and let you know how it goes.
OK, thx. Please be careful with your data :-)
Always am. I know Palm Sync is an awkward creature.

Per conversation with David: Default should be sync. Appears as "Handheld overwrites Desktop". Address Field #1 not carried (more likely a result of Bug 226221)
