This page contains my (personal) notes on how Telepathy (and to some degree rtcom) works, in general, and how it works on Fremantle, and how we plan to make it all work.
Accounts are stored in
/home/user/.rtcom-accounts/accounts.cfg on Fremantle, and
HOME/.local/share/telepathy/mission-control/accounts.cfg normally in Telepathy.
It looks like Telepathy mission-control (MC) is the one that actually manages the accounts, and
mc-tool can be used to manage the accounts. This means that likely there are no other tools that read
accounts.cfg on Fremantle, and everything that lists/adds/removes accounts goes through Telepathy MC.
It is not clear to me what adds the initial "sms" account, but there must be something that configures this account initially.
telepathy-ring is used to communicate with the modem through ofono. This account has the following options set on my device:
[ring/tel/ring] manager=ring protocol=tel param-account=ring Enabled=true HasBeenOnline=true ConnectAutomatically=true AutomaticPresenceType=2 AutomaticPresenceStatus=available Profile=tel NormalizedName=<SelfHandle>
ConnectAutomatically seems to suggest there is no specific program that starts telepathy-ring (just MC itself), as long as the account is requested (I guess?) by something.
