At University we have to do a software engineering project in the area of open source. So we ask you, if you have an idea how we could contribute to the Rhythmbox project. We are 2 or maybe more students who have good linux development experience. For us it would be important that our work would be a self-contained part of the rhythmbox project.
Are there any missing features that may be interesting for us to implement?

My personal list of missing/useful to have stuff

* based re-tagger (something like Picard, but integrated
in RB; of course a lot simpler then picard: choose song(s), select Edit
-> Check metadata, present a dialog with proposed changes)

* composer/album artist/comment tags in properties dialog (to add
compose you could need recent CVS gstreamer version)

* print CD cover

* used/free space bar for devices like portable players*

PS of course this is all stuff "inspired" by latest iTunes releases,
sorry, no innovation.

[*] something like:
  Used: 400 MB [********      ] Free: 300 MB      75 songs, 10 misc file

rhythmbox-devel mailing list
rhythmbox-devel gnome org

ehhe, we've started, so let's continue givin' ideas!

-) modify tags, based on name file (like ex-falso) and viceversa
-) massive download of cover pictures
-) re-arrange folders based on artists' and albums' tags (like Itunes?)

ok.. ok... I'll stop spamming on this 3d. ;)

"The paradigm of competition is a race: by
rewarding the winner, we encourage everyone
to run faster. When capitalism really works
this way, it does a good job; but its defenders
are wrong in assuming it always works this way.
If the runners forget why the reward is offered
and become intent on winning, no matter how, they
may find other strategies--such as, attacking
other runners. If the runners get into a fist
fight, they will all finish late."
