Hi all,

So, I have been looking into the deskbar applet to figure out if we can and
should fix it before the next 0.8 release briefly.

Current issues with doing this work:

- It is very out of date to the point where a re-write is almost more useful
here (when talking about the current Tracker APIs)
- GNOME shell will make any new work rather pointless as far as I understand
- The current module also looks out of date according to the documentation
on for creating a plug-in for Deskbar.
- We already have tracker-search-bar which does something similar here so we
do have an alternative solution.

So what I want to do is to find out if anyone is interested in fixing or
re-writing this work before the 0.8 release or not? If not, then I will
remove it in this week's release.

As one of the original stakeholders of this plugin I think it would be
fine if you just removed it. It's not like it is a point of no return
- or that it would be a huge problem to maintain outside the Tracker
