Great! Welcome! > The package for the last upstream version already received a review > from debian-mentors@ and is uploaded to mentors as 0.8.0-2. Here we do teamwork, not sponsoring. So no need for you to use that service any longer. Instead (when we've sorted out the practicalities so you have write access) use our team Git area at Alioth directly, and use this mailinglist for questions regarding the packaging and for requests for release by one of us that has upload rights to Debian. > I did open an account on alioth (under kaliko-guest). > How should I proceed now ? Did you read our wiki pages at http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia? There's even a page specifically covering how you join our team ;-) > I'm upstream author for MPD_sima, Ohh, I didn't realize that in our previous conversation. :-) The core idea of MPD_sima is cool - just what I have been dreaming about for some time. My dreams go beyond what MPD_sima does, however, and after trying it for 2 days I judged it unsuitable for me as-is. :-/ Hope you might be intrigued by my ideas: Album mode ---------- I often enjoy music as complete works, respecting the playing order originally chosen by the musicians when they composed the album. Would be nice if MPD_sima optionally would add albums rather than single songs. Prioritize manual selections ---------------------------- My music collection contains some non-mainstream stuff. Current logic of MPD_sima cause it to slowly degenerate into pop music (stuff appearing both in top-5 results from last.fm queries and in my collection). Would be nice if MPD_sima would remember last manually selected tune and (optionally?) take that into account as guidance, to go in circles around that instead of drifting off at random (or, as I claim, not truly random but in fact steered by populism). Musicbrainz support ------------------- I've registered all my music at musicbrainz.org. They recently tagged parts of their material with RDFa, allowing it to be semantically fetched. Would be cool if MPD_sima could make use of Musicbrainz IDs when available, e.g. to take into account collaborative and/or personal ratings of artists, albums and tunes, or maybe choose to favor music from same record label. Offline support --------------- I am involved in the FreedomBox project - about user-friendly, decentralized services. Would be cool if MPD_sima could be used in an autonomous mode, independently from centralistic services like last.fm. I imagine to use Musicbrainz tagging as mentioned above, or other tags as well - e.g. the genre which (as I understand it) is commonly gathered also with cddb. Would then (especially with cddb) need a text-fuzzying algorithm to treat e.g. "electronic" and "Electronica" as equal. Another helpful resource might be that Musicbrainz recently released parts of their database as Public Domain. That part could be packaged for Debian and used, either directly or setting up a local service that could be queried. I have interest in semantic web and RDF. Would it be interesting for you to try make MPD_sima able to query a local database, if I put together one such database service?  http://musicbrainz.org/user/jonass/collections  http://wiki.debian.org/FreedomBox Kind regards, - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
