Slightly long answer -

Baloo in Qt4 contained a separate file index, email index, contact index
and calendar index.
Baloo in Qt5 only does file searching.

The email, contact, and calender searching parts were put in a repo called
akonadi-search. Some parts of akonadi-search require Akonadi-Qt5 (namely
the indexer), the actual searching parts do not require it as they are just
light wrappers over xapian. So one can theoretically write a runner for
Plasma 5 without requiring Akonadi-Qt5.

In Akonad-Next, search will be properly integrated, and Baloo will play no
