Description Issue Tracker 2007-07-11 20:59:39 UTC
Escalated to Bugzilla from IssueTracker

Comment 1 Issue Tracker 2007-07-11 20:59:43 UTC
Since mono did not make the cut for RHEL-5 it means that the RHEL-5 Client does not have a desktop search tool (beagle).

Meta Tracker has impressed me so far and I believe it has the potential to surpass beagle in many ways.  RHEL-5 needs desktop search functionality of some type and Tracker seems to be very close to ready.  It just needs email and im support to be solidified.

What is the problem being solved here and what is the business case?

Comment 3 Issue Tracker 2007-07-17 04:13:35 UTC
The issue is that by removing mono support from RHEL 5 it leaves the RHEL 5
Client without the default GNOME desktop search engine beagle.  Desktop
search is a major feature missing currently and there needs to be a
solution for RHEL clients.  With the volume of email I currently receive
and the information I have on my desktop beagle is an essential part of my
work flow.  If I can't move my mail of my Fedora machine I can't expect
my clients to be happy either.

Tracker seems like the current front runner now but any of the other
projects that don't depend on mono would be acceptable as long as they
can index email and binary documents.

RHEL6 is released, there is still no beagle or something alternative.

Thank you for submitting this feature request for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Your request will be considered in a future release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 35 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-14 01:25:39 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
