So what is the trick to actually save data when using QML? So far, I have tried to mark the divelist changed and manually save to cloud, and what not, but am I manipulating wrong data or what, as nothing seems to actually save what I have changed?

That's strange, because that function calls mark_divelist_changed(true) - so anything that is in the divelist should be saved to the local repo.

After you call that function, what is added to your log?
asked to save changes but no unsaved changes
save operation in progress already
would explain why nothing gets saved.
Otherwise you should get a "Save changes to local cache".
And then there are a bunch more possible reasons why it wouldn't update things - look at the awkwardly named "loadDivesWithValidCredentials()" function (which is, in fact, where we save things...)
