I looked over the external dependencies for 2.91 [1]. I've bumped
the recommended versions to current versions in many places. There are
some places where we need to bump mnimal versions:

Yes, tracker is definitely one of those. Actually we've had a few comments about this in the past. I will find some time to update it soon. As per our discussion on IRC, I plan to make the version 0.9.x with a view to bumping it to 0.10 in the next month or so.

We are on the precipice of the 0.10 stable releases so there shouldn't be much difference there anyway.

Additionally, I need to resolve the configure switches we use and what is available in jhbuild. Ideally, we want the following enabled:

 - evolution plugin
 - totem plugin
 - nautilus plugin

One thing we did do recently is disable glib parsing because it was quite slow and not as comparable as libicu and libunistring. At the moment you have to specifically enable glib support if you don't have the alternatives. What are the thoughts here on this? For those interested in why see:


For those not interested in reading the threads, it mostly comes down to performance. Should we force glib here? I would say it probably makes sense to avoid people requiring even more dependencies.


Seems the minimum version is 0.7.6, I would make that the latest stable version. 0.7.6 is quite old now. If no one objects, I will do all this soon.
