Gnome-Pilot is a package with a daemon (gpilotd) that monitor for pilot connects on one or more devices (cradles/XCopilots/xxx). It has a conduit system, and is accompanied by a few conduits, basically for installing files and backing up db’s from the pilot. A few more interesting conduits exist, eg. the email conduit.
