pilot-link is a suite of tools used to connect your Palm or PalmOS® compatible handheld with Unix, Linux, and any other POSIX-compatible machine. pilot-link works with all PalmOS® handhelds, including those made by Handspring, Sony, and Palm, as well as others.
pilot-link includes userspace "conduits" that allow you to syncronize information to and from your Palm device, as well as libraries of Palm-compatible functions that allow other applications to take advantage of the code included in pilot-link.
pilot-link is the glue underneath gpilot, kpilot, and jpilot - in other words, if you use a Palm with Linux - you're using pilot-link. You may think the Palm is dead, but new devices are coming out regularly - witness the Treo's, including the 680 and 7xx series. See http://www.palm.com/ca/products/smartphones/. A Treo is just a Palm with a phone added - or is it the other way around?
The pilot-link site itself has quite the wealth of information for Palm connectivity, including networking, bluetooth, and infrared, to name a few. It's a good site to visit, and bookmark.
Donations: From http://www.pilot-link.org/, there is a donate button on the right side. Unfortunately, it looks like $ donations are via PayPal (which allows credit cards) only.
From past conversations, they need other help as well. Aside from needing coding help, they need Palm devices (only to borrow) so they can debug code to deal with new curves Palm throws at them. See: http://www.pilot-link.org/node/121 - "If you can spare a unit (or units) for testing and development (which will be used with the utmost care), please ship it to ..."
