Attached is a first attempt at a Thunderbird add-on for Zeitgeist. It adds
entries for new messages to Zeitgeist as follows:
Event interpretation: EVENT_INTERPRETATION.RECEIVE_EVENT
Event manifestation: EVENT_MANIFESTATION.SYSTEM_NOTIFICATION
Subject interpretation: MESSAGE.EMAIL
Subject manifestation: MAILBOX_DATA_OBJECT
url: Thunderbird's message uri
origin: mail sender's address
title: message subject
The details of the event are also recorded in Thunderbird's error
console, for debugging purposes.
There are a few issues with the extension as it stands:
1: It adds more than one event to Zeitgeist (with different uris) if the
message is in more than one folder. This is a particular problem in Gmail,
where messages and easily be in several different folders.
2: It does not yet distinguish between email messages and any of the other
types of message that Thunderbird can handle (so newsgroup messages will also
3: Thunderbird doesn't seem to open a message if it's passed a message uri.
