OK, how would you like to support the tracker API? I'm still not clear
on what you are saying.

One way would be to write a Tracker backend for Soprano 2.x which
would support a subset of the Virtuoso backend's functionality.

Another way would be to write a QSparql based backend for Soprano 2.x
which would interface with Tracker, and also support SPARQL endpoints
and Virtuoso as a side effect, although you would be perfectly welcome
not to use that extra functionality as the drivers are only plugins. I
happen to be an expert on the Tracker apis (both the DBus one and the
newer 'direct api'), and the Tracker team are cooperating to improve
their api WRT its use in QSparql. I am also an active KDE developer
who has developed language bindings for Soprano and Nepomuk, and I am
quite happy to work on KDE things in my spare time. So if anyone can
do this particular task I feel I should be about the person person to

I don't know what your plans for Soprano 3.x are as I haven't studied
the code yet.
