- Index non-offline messages. Currently, gloda only indexes messages that are available offline.
- Show indexing status in the activity manager. Is gloda indexing your messages? No way to know*… if only we showed things in the activity manager…
- Do not index junk messages. Gloda currently indexes your junk mail. It should not. Thunderbird knows when a message has been marked as junk, and knows who is a junk folder. Help gloda give up spam cold turkey.
- Implement a memory reporter for gloda. This would help us debug things. The follow-on would be to write something that actually outputs the information.
I don’t know much about psychology, but I have heard that people on the internet see a call-to-arms like this and say “I’m sure someone else better qualified will step up, maybe even hundreds of them… I’ll just let them take care of it.” I have news for you, people on the internet are lazy! Oh, so lazy! (I am reasonably confident that won’t happen. If it does happen, I will find enough work for everyone to do while I retire to a life of luxury funded by my ability to inexplicably motivate large swathes of the internet to do my bidding.)
