These executables are part of KF5. I've just changed the description
for this product to "Baloo is responsible for File Searching and
Indexing. This framework includes balooctl, balooshow, baloosearch,
baloo_file, baloo_file_extractor, etc.", now it should be clear to
users where to report bugs [1].

The incident from 2 hours earlier you mentioned will not be possible
after closing the "Baloo" product. Are we ready for this?

By 130+ bug emails do you mean automated emails from Bugzilla or
people reporting bugs to you in private emails?
