This is a page of notes on possible future directions for MKSearch. There are no plans to implement these features in the immediate future.
Open Office document indexing
The Open Office document format has metadata that would be suitable for indexing:
- It's all in XML
- It's stored as a Java archive
- It contains Dublin Core metadata
See chapter 2 of OpenOffice.org XML Essentials.
File system indexing
It should be reasonably easy to walk a filesystem directory structure, find and index supported document types using MKSearch. This could make document metadata available on an intranet, so people know who to ask for copy or could get it directly.
