Description of problem:
Can you please update the nautilus's dynamic search patch to look for tracker-0.8 instead of tracker-0.7 (dlopen libtracker-client-0.8.so.0 instead of libtracker-client-0.7.so.0 as done already upstream)? As the tracker maintainer for Fedora, I'm hoping to update tracker to its 0.8 series in F-12.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The patch can be easily backported to old nautilus, I don't see a problem with that.
But do you really think it's wise to rebase component like tracker in quite old and stable distro? FWIW, Fedora 13 also ships with tracker 0.6 series. Other packages like GtkFileChooser and Rhythmbox would need to be adapted as well. Not mentioning lack of testing, different UI and functionality.
I'm updating tracker in F-13 too, however it seems most (all) of the changes needed for the other packages (GtkFileChooser, Rhythmbox, and totem) to use tracker-0.8 are already upstream and in F-13 (or will be in the next back of gnome-2.30.1 updates).
I quite agree with you that the update for F-12 might be taking it too far, but tracker-0.6 is just so bad, I'm getting overwhelmed with its bugs (bugz.fedoraproject.org/tracker) ;)
In addition, gtk and totem packages in F-12 already have support for tracker-0.7 (which is sort of redundant now). I believe those can be updated for tracker-0.8 in a non-obstructive way, I can submit patches for both of them.

Luckily the tracker support in gtk and nautilus are quite separate pieces of code not needing any change while backporting.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
