I also dont see the significance of a proposed app needing to be in widespread use as the whole purpose of a four month period between proposal and acceptance is precisely to try them out!

Not really.  The four month is to give it a decent finish: to finish
integration, documentation, translation, and fixing bugs.  The app
should have already proved to be the right choice.  One way to prove
that is to be widely in use by major distros.  Another may be to have
the vote of major figures in the field inside GNOME.  It's really not
Russian roulette :-).

To let us know what exactly Tracker does, maybe you can write some stuff
down in, describe some usecases, how GNOME apps can
benefit, etc.  The entire "it's different from Beagle" thing makes it
not clear what it is.

I have made a start here (will add more later when I have some more time)
