Description Pankaj Sharma (reporter) 2010-01-18 19:31:47 UTC
SOFTWARE VERSION:
(Settings > General > About product)
Nokia N900, Maemo 5, Version 2.2009.51-1.002

EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM: 
(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
1. Not a bug, new feature request; details in comments section.
2. 
3. 

EXPECTED OUTCOME:
Hermes should be able to retrieve contact details such as profile pictures,
birthday, phone number, IM usernames, etc from Google's social networking
website Orkut.

ACTUAL OUTCOME:
Hermes currently support Twitter and Facebook only.

REPRODUCIBILITY:
(always, less than 1/10, 5/10, 9/10)
Always

EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:

OTHER COMMENTS:
Since facebook is really popular in western world with 350 million users, Orkut
is google's space in social networking. It has 100 million users, most of them
in Brazil and India.

It would be great if n900 users are able to update the contacts with data
retrieved from orkut. Mine is a classical case where 50 of my friends are in
facebook and rest 350 are in orkut.

Few additional information/ comments as suggested by Jaffa:
Social Network Suggested: Orkut.com
1. Generic or Friend Oriented: This is a friend oriented social network.
2. URL : orkut.com
3. Developer API: Found this link with google:
http://code.google.com/intl/en-US/apis/orkut/ I guess the API is based on
opensocial APIs.
4. Fields supported: (not sure about fields supported). The API on the above
link is for writing Orkut applications which are shown on web page of Orkut.
5. Identifier: not sure about this.

(Please avoid "Me too!" comments that just create bugmail for everybody.
Instead just silently "Vote for this bug", please.)

OpenSocial API is good news. Having looked at it briefly, all of MySpace,
Orkut, Hi5, Plaxo (and a fifth I forgot) all support (to some extent) the
OpenSocial APIs.

Library: http://code.google.com/p/opensocial-python-client/
OpenSocial REST Resources on MySpace wiki: (which is what I used with Plaxo)
