I don't want to lecture you, but if you want us to continue cooperating
with projects like Zeitgeist the way we have been doing for the last few
weeks, then please don't use terms like eliminate, inefficient and bad
design. It's not helping.

Also don't decide for another team what programming language they should
use. It's their decision to make, not ours. You are aware already that
I'm not much of a Python user myself. But that doesn't mean that I tell
people that they should redo their project using something else.

Zeitgeist people are interested in putting functionality into Tracker.

Which of the functionality will be in Tracker and which of the
functionality will be in Zeitgeist is going to be a process of many

We have been in discussion with them for many weeks and the cooperation
and discussions are going great at this moment.

Let us calm down on the rhetoric and let the Zeitgeist now implement
their plans. They are mostly good. Let's see some code happening now.

Afterward we'll start moving things around. 

Also we should get tracker into Gnome within 6 months so clients can go
straight to tracker for metadata, tags, events etc

Relax. All this is happening.

Let it happen, don't push things.
