Description Mark Banner (:standard8) 2009-05-28 07:17:55 PDT
It has been a few days since I posted, and I've not heard any negative comments about dropping support for Palm Sync, so I think its time to do it.

I have archived the code under a repo in my users directory:

and added a readme.txt with some information about it.

I'll be filing a separate bug on archiving the palm sync component.

This drops palm sync from within mailnews. A couple of notes:

- The do extensions directory after everything else hack is no longer needed.
- Address book no longer needs to export nsAbCardProperty.h; it was only palm sync that required the export.
- Majority of this patch is the file removals.

The correct patch this time...

mail/ removals - we no longer need to worry about not packaging PalmSyncInstall.exe, and the prefs are not a concern either now.

Removes palm sync from the SeaMonkey installer. Thankfully this is quite easy as I made all the field positions automatically work themselves out.
