I understand this as agreement to some degree...

Based on the responses here I'll try and add the proposal where
SearchChanged signal passes along the relevant content- and source
categories. Then when we have it written down it might be easier to discuss.

Regarding the ontology the most parts of the PIM components will have to be
removed before 1.0 as they really can't be made to make sense. Perhaps
Evgeny would care to elaborate :-) ?

Link-by-id will be part of 1.0 unless we discover some problems. Without the
nested queries (2.0 material) it will be of limited use though. Still useful
though. I'll write up a page for this asap so we can get it reviewed before

My hope is that we can roll 1.0 around Nov. 1st.
