In fact I have one local commit which I forgot to push... from Dec 2017. I
wanted to brush it up a bit and have it released again. Yes, I buy CDs and rip
them to mp3 or flac. Call me old school.

Do you plan to push this commit. Will you make releases?

Just done now.

I'd like it to be part of KDE Applications. Unlike Zanshin I'd rather have
this one tied to the Applications release cycle. That being said, it's been
eons since I had anything in the regular applications collection. Could
someone refresh me on what it entails to "make release"? Back in the day it
was fairly transparent, if that's still so low on work I can easily say yes...
if not I'll have to evaluate.

Regards.

Great, please work with Albert or whoever to get it into the KDE
Applications bundle.

One of the first issues I see is the screenshot needs updating, this can be
done here
<a href="https://cgit.kde.org/websites/product-screenshots.git/tree/README.md" title="https://cgit.kde.org/websites/product-screenshots.git/tree/README.md">https://cgit.kde.org/websites/product-screenshots.git/tree/README.md</a>
You may also want to update the metadata in the appstream .xml file,
currently it generates this:
<a href="http://apps.kde.org.uk/applications/unmaintained/org.kde.kaudiocreator" title="http://apps.kde.org.uk/applications/unmaintained/org.kde.kaudiocreator">http://apps.kde.org.uk/applications/unmaintained/org.kde.kaudiocreator</a>

Right now the main issue with audex is that the cover fetching doesn't work
(since Google removed a related API), but apart from that it works very well.

Of course, if you – for whatever reason – prefer kaudiocreator, feel free to
continue with that one.
Just wanted to point out that audex exists as well. ;)

Cheers,

I didn't know about this one indeed.

Thanks for bringing it up. I had a bit of time to look into it, and it looks
like audex is in a better state and it has seen some activity from Heiko in
the last few months which kind of de facto makes him maintainer. ;-)

Since I'd rather we have one project with a team size > 1 that two with a team
size of 1, I'll retract my previous offer of reviving kaudiocreator and turn
my attention to audex instead. Hopefully we can get it out of playground and
into KDE Applications.

Regards.

I've not heard of audex. It doesn't have appstream metadata and it's still
in playground so it doesn't feature on my radar.

Sounds good, let's get kaudiocreator added to the bundle.

I don't want to block on this, but given it seems relatively likely the "community" would be doing maintaince on this if it joins KDE Applications, I'd really welcome if this wouldn't depend on kdelibs4support.

Has anyone attempted to port away from it?

Cheers,
Albert
