Once again I am going to use my hackweek project to work on WSP, this time I want to concentrate on 4 areas that possible will help in getting this project accepted upstream (at least as some experimental feature)

  • A test client for doing basic searches (easy to target at windows but will work against the experimental WSP server too)
  • Start creating some torture tests around basic parts of the protocol, unfortunately I don't as yet see how to integrate with tracker in the torture test environment but would like make a start at least on the basic tests
  • Package a functioning samba with working WSP server with minimal manual steps (some manual steps are needed to set up a tracker system service... but I hope that it might be possible to create a special rpm to do this, I know nothing -> little about spec files, packaging etc. so this could be interesting to me as a learning experience
  • Tweak some bits and pieces e.g. some quoting in search terms causes problems, sorting should be supported (e.g. sort by name, date or someother column that is returned)
