1st FLOSS patch contribution


A few months ago, I sent a patch that slightly improved the README of Tracker, a project that is meant to be a data indexer (like Google Desktop) and much more. It is the first FLOSS contribution I ever made:

 Run time dependencies (also needed for build) :

-Sqlite 3.2+
+Sqlite 3.2+ (this is statically-linked due to the lack of guarantee of threadsafety in distro versions)
 libdbus (0.50 +)
 dbus-glib bndings (0.50 +)
 glib (2.6+)

That year, I went on to make some more minor code patches, learning a few things along the way, like GTK+ and GLib APIs.
