How often does gmail sync on the G1?

 I am used to Outlook Express where I can set the interval for how
often my PC checks for new emails. I can't find an adjustable variable
for gmail on my phone or the website- just an "autosync" option. (I'd
like to check once every hour)

Does the phone notify me, when set on auto, as soon as an email comes
in?

Does it actively check with the server every minute or something-
thereby running down a lot more battery power?

Are there any apps to set the interval for email checking?

 It is pushed from the server, not polled by the client, so there's no
fundamental notion of a sync interval. The "only" cost of the system
is that of keeping a TCP socket open, which is reasonably low.

1. Merging android-framework into android-platform?

http://source.android.com/discuss

We have two groups/lists today, android-framework and
android-platform, that are virtually identical. Whatever difference
exists in their descriptions exists because I stretched that
difference a while back, but that difference is tenuous, and a quick
glance at the discussions in both groups doesn't seem to spot any
significant difference between the topics discussed on either side.

I propose that we merge those two groups into a single one
(android-platform, as it's the one that currently has the most
subscribers) that would be the central point for contributors to the
user-space side of the Android Open-Source Project.

Once we get there, it'll be easier to police the group so that it can
specifically serve the needs of contributors, hopefully filtering out
the noise of people asking for porting support (there's
android-porting for that), app development support (there's
android-developers for that) or other random android questions
(there's android-discuss for that). Based on the volume of what's left
once that's done, there may be opportunities to split away specialized
sub-lists, the prime candidates being related to building the source
tree, and to everything media- and graphics-related. We're not there
yet though, and this question is about merging two seemingly identical
groups.

Please reply to this message if you think that the two groups should
be kept separate, explaining your reasons.

Thanks,
JBQ
