Please direct me to the right mailing list if this isn't the
appropriate one for things like this. There doesn't seem to be a
dashboard-users mailing list.
I would like to use Beagle to index my data CDs. I figured that
static indexes was the way to go, but I haven't quite determined the
best way of doing it. My initial idea was to create an index for each
CD, so that I could simply remove the index associated with a CD if I
threw out the CD. But then I started worrying about using hundreds of
static indexes. My idea then was to merge the static indexes into a
master index that I could rebuild whenever an index was added or
removed, using $(beagle-manage-index merge).
Does this make sense? Does anyone have a better suggestion?
Also, I figured that I wanted to add an attribute to each file indexed
in this way that says what CD it is on, for example, 'disc:N', where N
is an integer. There doesn't seem to be a way of doing this yet with
beagle-build-index. Is this something that would be interesting to
see as a patch, or are user-defined attributes outside the scope of
