Re: Desktop Search Hackfest

Kevin and Lukas have signed up till now. Unfortunately most of the other 
people who are involved with the project wont be able to make it. I didnt 
email the list since there were not a lot of people who were participating 
lately; so I wasnt sure if people are at all interested.

I missed Kevin on the IRC today, but I think it would be wise to take 
advantage of the fact that other desktop search devs would be there (looks 
like full team for Strigi/Nepomuk and Tracker). I have a few stray thoughts 
in mind, not much.

* Someone was proposing a sort of test-suite with lots of sample files and a 
database of what works and to what extent. There is already a bunch of files 
in svn/trunk/beagle/testing/files but we never managed to create a proper 
test suite. If you all can decide a common test suite then that will help all 
the projects. It will also help the developers in improving their 

* A gnome-do plugin would be good and a krunner plugin would be good. You dont 
really need to be at the hackfest to do these though :-)

* I know Arun (beagle-xesam author) is a bit busy these days, so any kind of 
help in beagle-xesam would be nice. Since Mikkel and other xesam people would 
be there, this is a good chance to figure out what needs to be changed in 
beagle or where beagle wont conform to the spec.

I havent put much thought into the meeting; also I will be gone for a month 
starting Wednesday so pretty much that is all I can help you with.

Keep up posted on what happens,
