create a dbus interface for searching banshee

Registered by Alex Launi on 2011-09-28

Currently we are accessing the banshee database directly. This has the advantages of being very fast, and very flexible. It however is a bit evil. There are possibilities of crashing banshee, locking, etc. A better solution is a standalone daemon/dbus interface that reads the db, and that can shutdown when banshee starts up. This has a lot of other benefits such as using banshee's library code so that all our search align with the same searching that's already inside of banshee.

Whiteboard

Hi,

This is not currently being scheduled for uds as the name doesn't start with a track.

Renaming it to design-banshee-search-daemon, desktop-banshee-search-daemon
or similar will make it be autoscheduled.

You can see the list of tracks by looking at the last part of the URL in track links
at http://summit.ubuntu.com/uds-p/.

Thanks,

James
