Have you ever searched lost document/email for more than 1minute?

For the last couple of weeks I was working with few smart guys on the MetaTracker project. It is a tool designed to extract information and metadata from your personal data, so it can be searched in seconds. Jamie, maintainer of the MetaTracker applied most of my changes upstream, but there are still few to go for, that is why I have made packages with all of them.

Now available with experimental support for Thunderbird e-mails, so please check it out and give comments!

Shiny MetaTracker in action with deskbar applet handler made by
Fritschy (also included in the installation script):

How do I install MetaTracker
\* The packages installed by the script were checked on Solaris Nevada (x86) build 67 and 72.
\* Just download the install-script and run it. Many thanks to Erwann Chénedé, for sharing the installation scripts, which he used for Compiz!
The MetaTracker packages are build with debug option.

This script will:
- remove the previous version of tracker installed on the machine
- install the new packages

If you want to check try Thunderbird support, you should install tracker and follow the steps:
\* Download the tracker.xpi file
\* Install in the Thunderbird using option Tools->Add-ons
\* Restart Thunderbird
\* Restart trackerd daemon (or simply logout/login)

The Thunderbird plugin is modified version of the one made by Pierre Östlund for the Beagle application. In the future I hope we will be able to make one generic plugin for both projects, what I am discussing with Pierre.
