I would like to eliminate the Zeitgeist daemon as what they want to do

python daemon!


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.

My concern is that it will make tracker look slower if there is
unnecesary redirection. We should take steps to explain that it makes
more sense to use tracker directy in cases were raw data from tracker is
being sent to and from gnome apps - thats all I meant

Okay that's fine, and thanks for sharing with us.

I'm sure that if there are performance issues with Zeitgeist that the
Zeitgeist team will eventually optimize them out.

For example, indeed, by reimplementing them in a more performing
programming language, or maybe even by implementing them as miner
plugins, SPARQL functions or code running in Tracker's processes.

I don't believe that Zeitgeist performing badly will affect Tracker's
