Bug Description

I propose gnome-activity-journal to keep track of recently accessed folders, that is folders where some amount of activity has been done. Sometimes i'd like to have this feature, because i work at several files in a folder and i better remember this activity by the folder name than by ten or more different files.

Example:

I am in directory foo. Here i edit a python script, look at 10/15 images, edit a latex source file, read the pdf file created, etc etc.
The day after i want to start this again, so i open gaj and i should see something like:

    some activity in folder foo [ * ]
       edited a file [+]
       read a document [+]
       worked with images [+]

Here [*] means go to this folder and [+] is an expander button (like the existing one)

GAJ should be smart enough to know when multiple files have been accessed/modified in the same folder and proposing to open that folder.

Just an idea

Cheers

Davide

summary: - gaj should keep tracj of recently accessed folders
+ gnome-activity-journal should keep track of recent activity in the same
+ folder

This is an engine feature not a feature for GAJ so ill mark the engine as affects.

affects: gnome-activity-journal → zeitgeist

This is already covered by the engine!
We store every activity with its origin (folder of the subject)

So this means that gnome-activity-journal developers can implement this feature if they like it?

Unfortunately i'm not a good mockupper.. :) But maybe an expander button (like the one already existing) could be a good first try.
