Again the use case is not visible to the user. It is all about sorting and ranking. I want to use it in Synapse. For that I need to have "starred subjects" which are all subject that have been ACCESSED or MODIFIED more than 10 times within the last 24h. These are usually things that are stamped in the users mind. Now querying for most used does not tell me how many times it was used. Thus if i opened something 2 times in a day making it the most used subject it actually bullcrap. Allowing me to query for the subjects and having a count would tell me how they relatively match to each other as well as how they rank in an absolute matter. I know it sounds stupid but there is no use case for it. It makes development easier. Another one I can think of is Unity Places. I have the most used. Now lets say the most used person was contacted 10 times in the last 24 hours and all others were contacted 9 times. This makes the count irrelevant since 10 to 9 is not big of a difference to make it stand out. Thus I shouldn't consider it as a star item.
-- Add new aggregate API https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/670358 You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zeitgeist Framework Team, which is subscribed to Zeitgeist Framework. Status in Zeitgeist Framework: Confirmed Bug description: Zeitgeist API can give us vague information but not statistics over the API Use case: - Give me counts of every subject_text from actor = Unity Currently to do that one will need to either: Request all events with Unity as an Actor and count the subject_text This can be done much better IMHO I am thinking of an Aggregation Extension. But before we hack on that we need to agree if its necessary and how the API will look like. _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
