[development] Attachment Indexing module.

Hello all,

I am currently writing an attachment indexing module. I've tried the
swish-e module (and even converted it to 4.7) but it doesn't do what I
would like it to do. I want all my search results to be integrated,
not in separate tabs.

So far I've created all the back end administration interface and I am
now moving on to the actual work part but I am having problems with
the file revisioning system. I need some clarification of the file and
file_revisions table so I can write some more specific SQL.

I would only like to index attachments if they are listed on the node
but I have no idea how the 'list' column of file_revisions controls
this behaviour. It seems that if it is a '0' then it isn't listed, but
if it is anything else, it is. Is this correct?

I realise that I also need to look at how flexinode handles its file
uploads so that these can be indexed too.

Is there any documentation on the structure of the DB? as I cannot
find any and it would help.


P.S. If this is the wrong list then apologies. I could not find a
module development list.
