There is already a project called FileTagger, which seems to have pretty similar goals: http://sourceforge.net/projects/filetagger/

Or what are exactly the differences of goals of these two projects?

Just curious.

Syntropy,

Thanks for the pointer. 

The FileTagger project was last updated in Sept 2006, and overall seems as non active (no files in CVS).

This project aims to these goals:

  1. Create a platform for simple and not-so-simple Text Mining algorithms to extract tags for documents. 
    One algorithm could be calculating words similarities and probabilities between documents having same tag and suggesting same tag for documents having same similarities and probabilities.
    Another algorithm could be searching for ISBN numbers of the document, accessing Google or Amazon, searching for that ISBN, and suggesting them for the user.
  2. Integrate MS-Word documents tagging into  Windows 7 extended file info attributes to enable better indexing by windows indexer and even Google Desktop.
