Recoll is a popular desktop search engine which's available in almost every official repo of any distro, except Gentoo. We also have a volunteered maintainer.

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=171271

Can some maintainers put it in tree?... been a long time since it's lying around (more than 3 years).

I don't think it is a "Desktop Search Engine"... i.e it cant see INTO files like doc, odt, ods, pdf, ps, chm, zip, html etc etc etc...

Command line interface also available which appears to be more advanced.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Unsupported Software as it's currently unsupported.

Bugzilla or the gentoo-dev mailing list are the best ways to get devs' attention. But remember that we are all volunteers and maintaining a package takes time and effort, so someone will usually do it if they have time and inclination to do so.

you know how it work de_logics ?

If not a gentoo dev endorcs the file but have a maintainer it will goes to sunrise

And i understand why devs doesn't wish to endorce a file they don't use.
- Even maintainer exist, the dev must check it : you don't want an external from gentoo project programmer play with an ebuild push in the tree like that no ? At least, not me, just because you can find a weird one that can put a backdoor or havock on my system (i'm not saying mr lugo is like that, just that it might happen)

- , if the maintainer disappears, people will bug the dev to update/fix it, and if the dev just remove it from the tree, he will face flames from many users...

Must be why devs think more than twice before agree to endorce anything, must be something really useful for them
