As suggested by Lydia Pintscher on kde-soc, I have already filed a GSoC
proposal on Google Melange. You can see it here :
(it should be visible by everyone).
The main idea is to follow what Aaron Seigo suggested several days ago :
using Baloo wherever possible and desirable in multimedia applications
so that the least features are duplicated between the applications, and
in order to allow sharing of metadata between multimedia applications.
The ideas given in the proposal can be categorized in two main areas :
* Extending Baloo so that it supports every multimedia-related features
needed by multimedia applications. This extension would touch many parts
of Baloo (widgets, file extractors, nepomuk-webindexers, but not too
much in Baloo Core)
* Modifying multimedia applications to make them use Baloo when possible.
The proposal suggests that the application used to test the whole
project could be Juk. If you think that another application should be
used as a proof of concept, I'm open to any suggestion.
I still have two days to modify the proposal. I welcome any suggestion
and any remark.
