Re: [Tracker] Tracker doesn't search for phrases in enclosed quotes

Hi Daniele,

I cite from one of the last comments in the bug report:

"So this bug was opened in 2007 and it's now 2010. Can someone from
the Tracker team comment on if this is a planned feature or not, and
if so when it's expected? If it's not planned or just not technically
practical due to Tracker's architecture - lets get that out into the
open so we all understand where things lie."

We cannot follow all bugs reported in every distribution using Tracker,
unless they are reported in the upstream Tracker bugzilla, which is the
only bug reporting tool we do follow:

If that bug was reported in 2007, it is probably targeted for Tracker
0.6.x, or even older versions. We are currently working in Tracker 0.12
stable series.

That's exactly what I would like to know, because it is such a shame
that a very good tool like tracker is let down by a macroscopic issue
like this. I think it is useless to concentrate your efforts in
achieving better performance or adding new features when it lacks of a
common one like this, compromising its every day usability. Think
about that please.

Thanks anyway for the work done

It seems the bug is about looking for whole phrases enclosed in quotes.
Tracker should be able to handle this kind of searches properly. See the
"sentences" section in

Maybe it's just tracker-needle, the searching UI, the one which doesn't
handle this properly.

Also note that "looking for words in files" (what we call FTS, Full Text
Search), is just a side feature of Tracker, something that can even be
disabled during build, as done in MeeGo Harmattan.
