i just tried out the akonadi googledata ressource and it synchronized succesfully with my google contacts adressbook. But weiredly all contacts are synced, but not all completly.

For some there is missing the phone number, some others are missing the e-mail adress.

I could not find any underlying system, but the bug is reproduceable and always the same entried are missing.

Some ideas where I could look for error messages?

This is a known missing feature (support all contact's fields) in libgcal:

In my opinion, this is not a duplicate of the mentioned bug. As I understand it, some contacts _do_ have the mentioned information, some don't.

I can confirm the bug on my system: I recently exported all my contacts to google (using a vcard file, so all contacts should store the email address, telephone number, etc. as the same "type") and on a few entries, only the name is imported back into akonadi.

I debugged a little on the issue and found the following: I edited one of the buggy contacts in google and requested akonadi to re-sync (using the debug-GUI) and sniffed the traffic using ethereal (wireshark ;-) ). I found that google correclty reports the changes, but the akonadi ignores this.

In my case, the contact entry had multiple email addresses as well as telephone numbers, but for others this worked just fine.

If you need any debugging info, feel free to contact me any time.

BTW: I really think that akonadi should have an option to sync using https!!
