Tracker Review

Registered by Robert Carr on 2007-10-31

Now that we are shipping tracker by default, we must review it's effectiveness and problems in Gutsy. Moving forward, performance should be evaluated, and new uses should be examined.

Trackers object tracking exposes ways to greatly increase desktop usability through intuitively providing access to files around content and attributes as opposed to their location on the filesystem, and we should look at ways to exploit this. Some examples include Trackers ability to build a music database (avoiding Rhythmbox having to maintain it's own database), and the ability to create a userspace filesystem organized around tracker tags/search.
