The most recent version is here:

But it does not work with TB68. This is the corresponding issue

I looked at the code once and it was not pretty, I was not able to work
with that - and I think that is the main problem. It has grown over years.

To be honest: I think that needs a rewrite. I am running at my personal
limit and cannot take on another one, but I would like to see a that
reborn as a provider for TbSync (as you can imagine). I will try to
assist any effort in that regards - but I guess I have to turn my
provider stuff into a solid webextension API first - and that will take
a while.

I think we should get Ben B onboard as well.


FYI: Documenting is a PITA, this is what I was able to put up for the
provider doc so far. <>

I don't know how much of a problem it will be to resolve these issues.
