Welcome to Mixxx!
It sounds as an interesting approach to use git for organizing your music
If we bring this to Mixxx somehow it would be definetly a big improvement.
If you wish to discuss details of your code, that can be done the best as
GitHub pull requests.
Is also a good start to read.
In general, I also suffers from duplicates in my library. It would be grate
if we could also add a quality analysis, that can identify retranscoded
tracks like flac fake tracks made from MP3 or something. But that is
probably an other story.
I am looking forward to work with you.
Kind regards, Daniel
