Re: Paperwork : a personal document manager (scanned and PDFs)

I think Simple Scan is not a core app and it's not a bad idea to integrate scanning and OCR features into gnome-documents (it's the most suitable application).

GNOME doesnt have a scanning application (much needed) and recently I wrote a report to add a configuration panel for capture devices for control center.

The features you described look promising, some of which we surely lack and are useful. But we need to find a way how this application fits in the GNOME suite.

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
