This is the first I've heard of this.  Or maybe I didn't read your previous
posts carefully enough.

Well, obviously most of this stuff is volunteer so it's likely
whenever he's about to do it.  But I don't think anybody is doing
anything dictatorial here.  It's not a spec unless the major music
players like banshee, rhythmbox, and others decide to approve
the spec.

We look at people who use the db as "ISV"'s who want to be able to 
create a music player in GNOME.  So I don't think we should approach
things as GNOME centric attitude and I don't think that's what is 
happening here..

Can you explain what libmpris is?
