First Steps with Tracker

As I‘ve been happily trying out the OpenSuse Build Service, and I wanted to have a presentation about it at the Lanedo apres-conference, I decided to package a recent version of tracker.

I managed to package it within an hour and then decided to need a use-case for these new packages. I picked GNOME Launch Box and after some hacking, I managed to properly replace the application search module by a tracker based module. It was pretty straight-forward to develop that module (after getting a bit into SparQL).

I even ended up doing some more cleanups and finally dropped libgnomeui and libgnomevfs.

I'm really looking forward to replace even more backends with tracker-based ones.
