      Remove Maemo/Meego leftovers · 809b5676
      Sam Thursfield authored
      This removes various code paths that we believe to be unused.
      
        * The userguides miner has been removed altogether.
        * The application miner no longer parses MeeGo-style .desktop files
        * The TRACKER_DISABLE_MEEGOTOUCH_LOCALE environment flag is gone
          (it already did nothing)
        * Character set detection with libmeegotouch is removed, only enca
          or libicu are supported
        * Meego-specific flags are gone from .desktop files
        * Functional tests have lost their vestigal Scratchbox and Aegis support
      
      There are 5 ontologies referencing Maemo, 4 of which are largely unused.
      These have been kept around in case anyone is using them outside
      Tracker.

      Meson build instructions for Tracker · 68b41e39
      Sam Thursfield authored
      See <http://mesonbuild.com/> for information about Meson.
      
      Remaining issues:
      
        * There's no `make dist` equivalent. We currently produce release
          tarballs containing the output files of the Vala compiler. We need
          to think through whether we can stop doing that. Shipping the
          generated .c files does make the Vala preprocessor useless so
          it would be good if we can stop.
      
        * The Firefox, Thunderbird, Evolution and Nautilus plugins are not
          built
      
        * https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/issues/671 -- means we can't
          depend on tracker_common_dep in most places and have to manually
          set link_with, include_directories and sources instead.
      
        * https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/issues/1469 -- without this we
          have to install generated Vala headers using a script
      
        * https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/issues/1229 -- means adding
          the #include guard to libtracker-sparql/tracker-generated-no-checks.h
          is a pain
      
        * The test suite has some spurious failures.
      
      Here's a rough speed comparison.
      
      Meson:
              time sh -c 'meson .. --prefix=/opt/tracker-meson -D bash_completion=/opt/tracker-meson/share/bash-completion -Dsystemd_user_services=/opt/tracker-meson/lib/systemd/user -Ddbus_services=/opt/tracker-meson/share/dbus-1/services && ninja-build -j 4 && ninja-build install'
      
              real  1m8.194s
              user  2m16.962s
              sys   0m20.532s
      
      Autotools:
              time sh -c './configure --prefix=/opt/tracker-autotools --with-bash-completion-dir=/opt/tracker-autotools/share/bash-completion --with-session-bus-services-dir=/opt/tracker-autotools/share/dbus-1/services --disable-nautilus-extension && make -j 4 && make install'
      
              real  2m37.750s
              user  4m37.214s
              sys   0m54.806s
      
              Plus 30+ seconds of ./autogen.sh first.
      
      Note that Meson builds may fail if your source tree has generated files
      from an Autotools build in there. If you see errors about duplicate
      definitions, first try cleaning your source tree (use `git clean -dfx`,
      but make sure you commit any work first!!)
