Description Owen Taylor 2010-05-03 17:52:24 UTC
The Evolution plugin causes a substantial performance degradation to Evolution for what is a side-purpose to why people would normally be installing Tracker. (I don't have exact numbers but it feels like updating my mail is probably half the speed when the plugin is on, and there's a lot of extra system IO load.)

Users can disable the plugin in Evolution preferences, but probably won't have any idea that they need to disable the plugin. Since we hope are hoping to install Tracker by default in F14, everybody is going to see very bad Evolution preferences.

I think we should move the Evolution plugin into a separate subpackage.

Just to be sure, is this happening with tracker-0.8.x?

Yes. (0.6 isn't usable, I've rebuilt the tracker-0.8.x packages and am using them on F-13.)

tracker-evolution-plugin subpackage of tracker has been created in rawhide.
