I've been looking at how to implement a new communication manager that
communicates with the OLPC presence service and I'm still trying to
make sense out of parts involved there, like DBus, the presence
service and the existing plugins (linklocal_plugin.py and
Can someone provide more insight on the role of the above plugins? It
seems that they act as "glue" between the presence service and the
connection managers implemented in C. The OLPC wiki also provides a
list of methods for the Presence Service DBus, what are the plugins
that interact between the Connection Managers and the Presence Service
to satisfy these methods. Furthermore, the DBus documentation talks
about "bindings" that can be use to interface with it, are the plugins
mentioned above (linklocal_plugin.py and server_plugin.py) these
bindings or are they somewhere else?
Also, is there any documentation about the interface between the
Connection Managers and the activities? The OLPC wiki only provides a
brief document about the methods.
Any insight would be appreciated.
