Hello Carlos, Great, this 'split' together with the domain ontologies will make it now more easy to more widely deploy Tracker's SPARQL endpoint in all sorts of environments. That includes containers, infotainment systems, desktops and ... who knows what the spooks and the people will come up with?!
If now the default ontology also becomes a package, then tracker-miner- fs could depend on that ontology package, and the ontology package could depend on tracker. That way a standard tracker installation wouldn't even come with Nepomuk. Only when tracker-miner-fs gets installed, would a (desktop) user get a complete situation with SPARQL endpoint, Nepomuk as domain ontology and tracker-miner-fs as file system mining. Applications that want to operate on the Nepomuk domain could then join tracker-miner-fs's domain URN, and could even create a new one that still uses Nepomuk in case they wouldn't want to share the domain with tracker-miner-fs. And finally, they can also define their very own ontology and domain URN, for their own class of applications. Great news that all this stuff is happening! I hope to see many consumers of it in the coming years ahead of us. ps. It would someday be cute if the SQLite layer would be a little bit less intertwined with tracker's core code. Then perhaps someday people could port tracker to other DBs. Not sure about it, as tracker is really not for the big-data world in my opinion. We really designed it to be used embedded within another appliance (containers, desktops, mobile&embedded, etc).
