Mostly, the "todo" items sent from the server will be rejected by the local
We are the server, the phone is the client. Do you mean client here?
Care to explain? I don't see why or where the todo items would be
And the client will not sending "todo" items too. This
effectively as only syncing
"todo" items I think.
Again, I don't see why we would not send "todo" items when the
data source is active.

I would also like to support syncing only calendar or todo, if my above comments
Even if we can get it to work, is it guaranteed that the two peers
remain in sync?
Normally, doing a "syncevolution ... calendar" followed by a
"syncevolution ... todo" has exactly the same effect as a
"syncevolution ... calendar todo".
Not so when the "syncevolution ... calendar" discards changes made to
"todo" that the peer is sending us. We cannot count on the peer sending
us these changes again the next time, even if we reject the changes with
a "temporary" status code.
I had asked Lukas that on the Synthesis mailing list. The Synthesis
engine is smart enough to distinguish between temporary and final status
codes, but a) many servers always sent a 500 status code, regardless
what their problem was and b) clients do not check the exact status
