How to turn off tracker now?

Tracker miners running like mad as one of the first things when demonstrating
a fresh install of Fedora to someone, is really bad.

Tracker seems to be configured in dconf in /org/freedesktop/tracker . You can use dconf-editor to configure that. Or use gsettings:

$ gsettings list-recursively | grep -i org.freedesktop.Tracker

Does anyone know why tracker-preferences package was removed? I can't find it in src.fedoraproject.org nor I can find any email about it. That package is honestly essential. Tracker sooner or later gets stuck in a loop on about every system I work with.
