Re: [Tracker] haw to force index/reindex of one file/directory?

I described it in my document. Info you get from dcim to group files and
nut just blind show or copy that.

To do that we need to read the DCIM filesystem anyway. If we are going
to insert the semantic relationship between photos that are part of a
group (panoramas, intervals, etc.) then we need an intimate knowledge
of the directory layout and since the camera importer is going to
decipher the DCIM layout itself, why not let it read the list of files

Anyway, if tracker will index attached removable storage, why not just
let im do it? I will need this info any way.

Which info?

Before import we can just call file list function in solang with limited
UI and pass search option (like 'urn:nepomuk:datasource:2018-341A') to
show only files on cam.

When the camera will be removed Tracker has to isolate the URLs from
this datasource. Tracker probably does that, but this is tricky and if
we can avoid doing this (which might mean overriding the user's
preferences) then better.

Happy hacking,

One reason that life is complex is that it has a real part and an
imaginary part.
