Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Source groups

Looks quite nice. I particularly like being able to hide certain groups, such as music stores and other online services while still being able to view them very easily and quickly when needed.

As a downside the source list now takes up more space vertically than it used to, and I think it's quite large already even with a relatively small number of playlists. It's particularly evident to me since I don't have a very high resolution display and because I'm a heavy user of the play queue and like to keep it in the sidebar. The option to hide groups alleviates this a little, though.

One nice addition would be to save the status of the groups so that collapsed groups would also appear collapsed the next time RB is started.

I'm also not completely sure if it's a good idea to forcibly show import errors and missing files as separate entries in the source list. They used to be hidden as subcategories under the Library source but now at they are are very visibly shown directly in the source list.

I get a few import errors every time Rhythmbox is started due to a couple of text files (lyrics) and a pdf file residing in the music directory hierarchy. That's preventable, at least in my particular case, but the behaviour is similar for missing files, and that may not be so good. Many people may have non-persistent tracks, such as those on remote hosts (accessed over GnomeVFS, for example) or removable drives, and while it's a good idea to allow the user to find out which tracks are currently (and perhaps temporarily) unaccessible, I'd prefer not to have it forcibly shown to me all the time.

Generally, though, looks cool.
