The IconKit (hmm, not compiling _right now_ :-), but you could have a look at the source) is currently hosted in the Étoilé cvs, Étoilé is a small and innovative desktop environment project started by Quentin, organized around an advanced workspace application designed with Document store support in mind (a bit like Microsoft WinFS or Apple Spotlight) and other things, a rough description of the project can be found at https://gna.org/projects/etoile .

I'm quite interested in the "Document store support" and "search (spotlight)" part.
 I wrote MyLibrary (http://www.people.virginia.edu/~yc2w/MyLibrary)
 partly because it's hard to find a cross-platform solution.
 Most meta-data file system is tied with OS, or last least, file manager.
In MyLibrary, you can drag a folder into the source table (left one) and see the meta-data.
 (requires 0.4.7 and is not tested on GNUstep yet).
 Search will come later because I need to reimplement the search GUI.
 If Étoilé has a proposal on the search GUI and MVC model,
 I would be very happy to adapt it and try to implement.
