The original data source is OpenLDAP, I'm currently using Kaddressbook
(KDE 3.1.3) to import it so I can copy it to the phone via Knokiisync.

I asked if there were LDIF to gnokii converters but everyone around here
kept quiet.

My KDE wishlist would be;

Kmail should query LDAP servers directly for autocomplete of mail
addresses. Seems odd it doesn't do this already, most other mail clients do.

Some sort of Kaddressbook/LDAP server synchronisation. Looks like I may
(soon?) be able to store KAddressbook data in the LDAP server directly,
which may do what I want, although in most cases you need some sort of
sanity check along the lines of what Knokiisync is trying to do,
whenever you synchronise address books unless one is clearly a master
copy and the rest just slaves.

Sounds good, looking at the 3.2 screenshots the PIM tools seem to be
getting far more sophisticated, but the whole area of mobile phone / PDA
synchronisation seems a bit messy currently.
