* RHYTHMBOX PLUG-IN EXPERIMENTATION (lmacken, ssalevan). Jamendo has
great xmlrpc calls. We'd like to hook into them so that Rhythmbox can
show artist info -- maybe even in the notifications field for Rhythmbox.
Like, say, where an artist will be playing, or where you can buy a
t-shirt. Mostly, we'll just be playing around to figure out how this will
work. Luke/Steve, it might be worth finding some CVS space in Fedora-land
if other people are interested in this.
What I'd like to see is a connection between rhythmbox and wikipedia.
So, for instance, click on the artist name and it brings up the artist's
wikipedia page in browser. This can be done by pulling the wikipedia
URL out of musicbrainz (they have over 16k wikipedia references). I'm
working on something similar to slurp appropriate wikipedia entries as
notes in my iPod.
* GET CSOUND APPROVED FOR FEDORA EXTRAS (gdk). As part of the effort
get Tamtam working on as many systems as possible, I'm begging our Fedora
Extras community to review the csound package that Dan Williams has
submitted. I am willing to bribe people, by the way. :)
This is done. btw, ZynAddSubFX also just went in.
* FIND A FAMOUS MUSICIAN FOR FEDORA STARTUP SOUND (all). Eno and
have dedicated their talents to the Windows startup sounds. Surely we can
find some freedom-lovin' music superhero to do some work for the good
I think so as well. Heck, the drummer from Blur used to take Linux
kernel sources _hardcopy_ on tour as reading material. And I'm pretty
sure Trent Reznor has used FOSS software in some of his NiN recordings.
In any case, have you thought about the license requirements for this
