Thanks, i just found it and built it (had to fix the Makefile, tough).

I was forced to, as the geglmm 0.1.0 doesn't support the GEGL that comes
with Ubuntu.

Tracker can already search for EXIF and XMP tags. For example, it
already finds images tagged with F-Spot (with the write-to-file option
enabled). That's actually great news, because that means an user will
keep his classification when switching from F-Spot to Solang.
Also, as i understand, Tracker's "writeback" functionality is intended
for updating metadata in the files when the files support it (like mp3,
jpeg, etc.). 

I have two question about working with Solang:

1. What thumbnailer service to use? I guess i need to install some
application, but have no clue which 
Some images haven't thumbnails, and i get the following errors:

thumbnailer-proxy.cpp:155, void
 guint, GError*, void*): The name org.freedesktop.thumbnails.Thumbnailer1 was 
not provided by any .service files

2. On the "tags" list, i get tags that aren't from images, like tags
Tracker extracted from PDF files. Is that intended?
