</a> ?<br>><br>> I've found out that Tracker also deals with thumbnails. Would Xesam be a<br>> useful interface to thumbnails in the light of a clear demand to show result<br>> thumbnails?<br><br>Beagle's GUI generates thumbnails only for search results, and it uses
<br>the GNOME mechanism to do this.<br><br>I don't think it's a good idea for the crawlers themselves to do this;<br>it seems like a waste of disk space, and many of the thumbnails will<br>be outdated by the time they'd actually be displayed (in a search
<br>tool, the file manager, etc.).</blockquote><div><br>I agree with Joe in that we should keep thumbnails out. At least for this iteration.<br><br>I'm not agreeing with the fact that the thumbnails will be out of date, but let's not start that discussion if we are not going to include them anyway.
