Wrt to comment #23, I remember over a year ago in blog-posts or wherever
some communication between Seif of Zeitgeist fame and the Tracker people
about integration/linking together. There was talk of one of them
pushing events to the other.

Certainly if Tracker pushed an event to Zeitgeist everytime it
'discovered' a new file, that would certainly help Zeitgeist to be aware
of alot more of the user's filesystem. If the user is using Tracker,
then resource-wise the user would be no worse off, since Tracker is
already doing the crawling & monitoring anyway.

However, of course Tracker itself is configured by the user to NOT crawl
their whole filesystem, so for some users it is arguably still
incomplete (though it would be good enough for my own uses).

Bug description:
  The Unity interface, with its files-place feature for user access to
  files/documents etc. is really great.

  However there is a problem since the search feature relies wholly on
  zeitgeist (AFAIK), in the zeitgeist is not tracking everything.

  E.g. in openoffice, I create a new file (or open an existing one) from
  within openoffice itself. This file does not show up, presumably
  because openoffice does not (yet) push its activity to zeitgeist.

  I guess any number of other programs could suffer the same problem.

  For the average user, this is surely going to be confusing. They will
  create documents via legitimate means ('New ...' buttons in their
  applications), and then expect to be able to search for them in the
  Unity files-place interface.

  To avoid this confusion I would guess there really needs to be a
  filesystem watcher on the home dir (or key folders within it) so that
  zeitgeist is aware of activity caused by non-zeitgeist-aware
  applications.
