Re: [Tracker] tracker-miner-rss 0.3

Hey Roberto,

Would you guys be interested in getting this piece of software into
Tracker's repository and project?

Perhaps you prefer to manage and maintain it yourself outside of
Tracker's tree?

But just for your information do I think, and I bet the other team
members too, that getting your miner under the umbrella of the Tracker
project and into its repository might be a win-win for both teams and
more importantly our users.

Let us know what you think.

This is just an update about tracker-miner-rss effort, already mentioned
in this list some time ago.

Website is here:

SVN is there:

Last release (0.3) here:

Since 0.2 we (Michele and me) have just dropped dependency from rss-glib
[1] due some limitation found, and created our own Glib-oriented feeds
handling library, libgrss, starting from the code of Liferea [2] and
adding nice stuffs such as a PubSub [3] subscriber implementation. At
the moment it is shipped with tracker-miner-rss itself, in the future
may be splitted so to easy usage by other developers.

Next will come integration with libchamplain [4] to describe geographic
points found in geo-rss enabled feeds, integration with libedataserver
[5] to better handle "person" rappresentation (suggestions for a better
PIM-like shared library with useful objects?), and perhaps a first
full-featured feed reader using Tracker as backend.

Enjoy :-)
