i have the impression that those properties are application

i really like the use case of quick tagging using a key per tag, but
that relation should be handled on the "client" side, not in tracker.
I don't like to insist but I think color at least should be integrated
in the ontology. Actually I agree that, while one key tagging is very
application specific, the color of a tag should be desktop wide :
imagine gtg displaying your tag in green, nautilus in blue and hamster
in red ! What's more user doesn't probably want to specify a color for
his tags in every app as tags are now desktop-wide.
I am not a programmer of tracker, yet. However, I want to
share my thoughts.
Any ontology is primarily defencive to additions or changes.
the ontology that tracker writes 'nepomuk' attempts to
unify a language for various projects. The ontology nepomuk
was created by Open Semantic Collaboration Architecture
Foundation (OSCAF) as project Social Semantic Desktop,
I think there is value for users and developers to know
trackers relation to nepomuk, who in the tracker project
meets with nepomuk. Perhaps the work is divided to
programmer per type of ontology, annotation, contact
For users or developers with questions of the ontology in
tracker, you may have more power to direct your questions at
(correct me if wrong)
Developers of an ontology (ex, OSCAF/nepomuk) are typically
a separate project to the application of an ontology (ex,

I think the current developments with ontologies presents an
challenge for us all to define our relations in an common
For example, Florent, if you ask question as intelligently
and reasoned to social semantic desktop I think you will
have a better answer. If your suggestion is added to the
ontology that tracker uses, then next you could
unproblematically ask the programmers of tracker to add the
regards (and thanks for the feedback in the ontologies)
Thanks for the answer.
What do you think about Symbol and subTag ?
