This page is dedicated to Nepomuk development ideas, progress, experiments, and is a general starting point for new developers.
For general information about the Nepomuk project see the dedicated Nepomuk homepage.
The Nepomuk project is maintained by Sebastian Trueg of Mandriva.
The following links provide good reads for getting used to the Nepomuk system and its APIs.
Nepomuk is a rather young project with a notorious shortage in developers. There are many tasks and subprojects to get ones hands dirty on. Unlike other projects like Plasma, however, developing for Nepomuk is not easy. One has to read up on a lot of things and fight some day-to-day annoyances. But: helping with the development will improve the situation in any case.
If you are interested in working on a task in this list, please contact Sebastian Trueg.
The low-level development tasks are those that are not directly reflected in the GUI or even in the API used by most developers. However, they are important in terms of performance, scalability, and compatibility.
Soprano is the RDF database framework used in Nepomuk. Currently Soprano does not support transactions, i.e. sets of commands that can be rolled back. An experimental development branch exists which already contains new API for transaction support (while keeping BC).
It still misses an implementation of the transaction support in Soprano backends (Sesame2 and Virtuoso) and in the client/server architecture.
