I'm looking to add better search support to Planet Venus[1]. I first heard about tracker as it is the default for Ubuntu Gutsy. I see in the documentation that there is a "user definable object store (for things like notes, playlists, contacts, etc) complete with user-definable properties".

Taking a quick peek at the documentation, I see that the xml_filter uses xsltproc to throw away all of the tags. I'd like to provide a different filter that identifies some tags as user-definable properties.

If somebody can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.

We are moving over to XESAM shortly which will deprecate some of our
dbus interfaces

The next major version of tracker (0.7.0) will support xesam and this
will fundamentally change how metadata is handled and queried.

If possible I would recommend you wait til after xmas for this by which
time we should have xesam support in place

more info on xesam can be found here:

My initial interest is in loading the data. XESAM appears to be focused on query (retrieval).

Feeds tend to have some metadata that may be of interest. E.g.: titles, dates, author, tags, license. I'd be interested in working initially on an Atom to XESAM ontology mapping, which could then be generalized to RSS 1.0 and RSS 2.0.

I'm comfortable coding in C, Python, XSLT, sh, and other languages. Working with daily builds and regenerating indexes due to incompatible schema changes are not a problem.
