So my question is, is there some way of adding this mime-type to the
list of file-types who's contents are indexed by tracker.  I've noticed
that there is a /usr/lib/tracker/filters directory which seems to
contain shell-scripts for filtering different file types.  Should I just
write a 'null' filter here (which just dumps the un-filtered text data)
with the name x-matlab_filter to get tracker to index this mime type?
Or is there more to it than that?

in general yes that should work however - if not let us know

OK, that seems to work, in so far as the contents of the text/x-matlab
files is now indexed.   However, they seem to be indexed into the
"Other" service.  So my next question is how do I add new mime types to
the "Development" service.  Again I've noticed that in the file:
seems to contain information about how different services are indexed
and which mime-types correspond to each service.  So tried the simple
approach of adding text/x-matlab to the development section of this file
-- but this seemed to have *no* effect.  Is this to be expected?

I then tried searching through the source code (for 0.6.3) for where the
"real" mime -> service mapping is stored and found another
mime->Development service mapping in the file
This mapping seems to be hard-coded in this file.  So is this how the
mime -> service mapping is achieved rather than through a configuration
file?  And more directly for my problem, do I just add text/x-matlab to
the development_mime_types array and re-build to add this type to the
service mapping?

the hardcoded way is the old way

the new way will be via desktop files (default.service) but its not
fully operational yet

feel free to send patch for former
