libgsf is one option dependency for tracker.
it is already used to extract meta data from ms office file.
it extracts title, subject, keywords information.
but I don't know if there is any cmd tool based on libgsf to convert ms
office documentation into plain text.

wvware and ole2 are (very) outdated, and the successor of both

The following projects have already moved from wvware/ole2 or will
move soon to libgsf:
gnumeric, mrproject, abiword, libwv2, koffice
The only downside of libgsf is that it relies on GLib 2+ (gnome-lib).
But this is probably a non-issue for the MetaTracker project.
I have talked recently with the libgsf project maintainer (Jody
Goldberg), and he suggests to move to libgsf, as it supports a lot of
more formats (that are based on ole2) and is more matured than older
unmaintained projects (wvware and ole2).

tracker use wvText to convert MS word into plain text, here I have some
idea about it:
 Tracker use AbiWrod instead
 Does openoffice have utility/API to do the convert thing?
dunno about 2 but all major distro's ship wv so we will continue to use
it until something better comes along
