Re: [Banshee-List] Cleanup plugin now available

Ok, I'll update the plugin after I finish the playlist import/export
stuff to have the confirmation dialog that lists the files that it
will delete.

Probably not hugely common, but I do remember a while back in some other
media player being bitten when the 'auto file scan' feature decided that
since my /mp3 NFS share wasn't mounted it would helpfully delete my
entire library :(

Agreed.  Personally I think that it will become more and more common for
people to have their media available from a central location so that it
is OS/computer/environment independant.  Obviously a fileserver sitting
and sharing by SMB/NFS to your desktop/laptop/mythbox/osx/windows/etc
makes it much more available for the home entertainment / wired house.


Running it manually and having it display a dialog asking for changes
works well though too :)

Oh, and as an aside about the playlist for deleted files I was actually
wrong, it wasn't RB that does it but banshee's 'error report' or
whatever it's called.  In the .11 series if you add files that are
already in the library you get a list of the errors in the same tree as
your playlists, that's what I was thinking of.
