Hi Martyn,

ÂGreat work! I like the look, and in general the contents are ok.

it's very cool.
ÂMainly i am missing "the big picture" description. More than technical details, things like

* Tracker is a USER information STORE with two big goals/benefits: share information between apps, link information from different sources

find stuff?
This is translated in technical terms in an store with a formal schema (ontologies) and a query language (sparQL). The store is fill with information coming from "miners", e.g. miner-fs + community effort like miner-facebook.

ÂMaybe this should go in the "about" page.

planning to expose 0.7 bits after 0.8 is released, since 0.7 is dev
series and 0.6 is prod series?

My initial thoughts about the work so far:

- I think the features page is a bit lacking something. Not sure if there should be more ontologies there or not. I don't have links for the Tracker specific ontologies of course. Ivan says he wants to add a documentation link there for all our ontologies. We can add that a bit later I think. As for other features under "technology" I think there are some things missing which I can't think of right now so any input here would be really appreciated.

Lately i have improved a little bit the HTML generator of the ontology and started adding descriptions and diagrams in the ontology. It is a work-in-progress, but we should link this documentation (coming from the tracker ontologies) instead of the upstream pages. I want to mention that in this documentation every ontology has a link to the upstream one, and to the changelog in git, to make easier to discover the differences.

If anybody is interested on take a look into this documentation, go to utils/services and run "" (be sure "dia" is installed in your system to generate the diagrams). It will create a folder build/ontologies with the documentation.

- I realised we don't have any libtracker-client documentation. We should generate this the same way we do for the other 2 libs on the documentation page.

I'd make a clear distinction between "information for the user", "information for the developer to use tracker", "information to extend tracker".

A lot of info for developers are on the wiki, but it lacks a lot of info for the User

From User point of view, classical questions:
How can I use tracker? (Only SPARQL query?)

Front end?

Tracker-search-gui is still there or not?
Integration with Nautilus?


What do people think? I choose the colours from the original logo mostly. If anyone has any input on that too, that would be great.

I like it :)



I would like to get this up and running by the end of the week. It should just be a case of merging the branch to master for gnomeweb-wml.

Fine with me. We can improve it later, it is a big improvement.
