I think it's a good idea to keep the OpenTracker somewhat independent from the OpenBeOS source tree - although I see that it is very tightly integrated into the system, and libtracker.so is a part of BeOS. I would just import OT into the sources, but only to let stuff compile - much like many other third party applications. It would not be allowed to do any changes to that code - those changes should go into the main OT repository which could be later on reimported in OpenBeOS (for API changes or whatever, it doesn't have to be the latest version). Unlike OpenBeOS OT is a stable product which will be continuously updated - and this should (at least in theory :-) happen much more often as OS releases. Some day later, if OpenBeOS is the one and only out there, and has a stable base, we might reconsider it, though. Adios... Axel.
