On Github, someone told me that there is someone else in the Gnome

I'm curious: can you please describe your use case for having a second document manager in addition
to Documents? I don't want to prejudge, but I'm a bit skeptical as to how adding a new app to
maintain would be better for GNOME than just improving Documents and Simple Scan.



It's mainly focused at scanned documents and being as lazy as possible. So there are some elements that 
differ from Documents + Simple-scan:
- OCR (I guess that could be added in simple-scan)
- Focus on not having to sort documents in the file-system at all. Not even having to name them.
- Automatic labeling of documents when they are added (uses Bayesian filters)
- Fuzzy searches: because exact searches are no good when the OCR messes some letters. And you don't
want to waste time fixing OCR results (I assume Tracker can do that do, but I've never been really fund of 
Tracker & such)
- Export: includes OCR text in the output PDF + allows to clean the scanned images
