I'm in the College of Charleston group that is working on Banshee for one of our classes. At the moment, we are looking for a simple bug to fix to get us started on contributing to the project.
As an aside, I initially thought that this might be a good choice: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=523644
On further inspection, though, it seems like figuring out the meaning of a given ' ' might be a complex problem. If I understand the code correctly, a space can effectively mean "and" via line 77 of UserQueryParser as in the example "artist=foo rating=5", or it can be junk that has to be removed as in "rating = 5", or it can occur within a string that should be a single term, as in the given example, "added>two days ago". I haven't thought of a reliable way to handle spaces while keeping the input format flexible without giving the parser some information about the data being parsed.
Anyway, if someone with more experience with the project could point us toward a better candidate for a simple bug, or if there is a better way of looking at the bug I have been working on, any input would be appreciated.
