Mikmod has obsoleted the old tracker for a *long time*. If you like the
old tracker, feel free to package it up and maintain in Fedora. It
probably takes less time to maintain it as compared to writing these
Why not name the new database "pine" since that would make as much sense
or even more since Pine isn't in the FC scheme of things.
Pine might not currently be in the formal Fedora repository but folks do
use it. So your argument makes no sense to me. Also tracker is not a
database. It uses one though. Read the links in more detail.
Lots! Tracker is one helluva app and doesn't need
anything huge to run on. <sigh> my two cents, Ric
Lots of different packages get to have the same name. We deal with that
constantly in Fedora repositories. So learn to live with it.
