If you're asking for a new service that isn't supported by gdata-python-
client, this will immediately get flagged as WontFix.

What service (Calendar, Docs, Picasa) should be enhanced?


What is the enhancement?

to work with google drive

Really I'm interested in the "Drive" rebranding w.r.t. the googlecl and gdata projects. `google docs ... ` still works fine.

Really what I'm more interested in is the likelihood that the "--no-convert" option may become available to non "Premier" users. Or even, when they eventually do release a Linux client, that will immediately solve a lot of the things I was trying to do with google-cl/gdata. (Really I'm after drop-box like functionality, like InSync provides for Windows)

Raise your own separate topic please rather than hijacking mine. 

I know Google docs still works. My mobile phone is nagging me to convert to Google Drive...I keep saying no to keep it as Google Docs.

Can someone here confirm ->> Does googlecl work if I convert to Google Drive?

I wasn't trying to hijack your topic, and my reply was not clear... I have "converted" to Google Drive, and it seems to have no impact on googlecl -- my `docs` commands still work.

Whew. Converted - no impact here either. I am surprised and disappointed that there is still no official information to confirm googlecl also supports google drive.

I guess the googlecl is a dead project, since last updates are from over a year ago. For me the googlecl doesn't even work with the newest gdata, so I have forced my system not to update gdata anymore. I hope that the soon to be (or not to be) Linux client will offer the functionality I need.

I hope it is not a dead project! 

Googlecl is the only way I know to provide automated independent local data backups at the moment. Such things are important for me and my customers. Perhaps a moderator can re-assure? 

I can confirm the versions in Debian Squeeze seem to be peachy.

I have noticed that when uploading to Google Drive using googlecl, the --folder switch does not seem to work. It knows whether the folder or subfolder exists, but the file is always uploaded to the root directory. Anyone know a fix for this?
