Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Rating Songs

now that you made me think about that is not a very good thing to fill the
rate inside a song!
Otherwise, is there a way to synk the ratings of the ipod songs with the
ones on the library and reverese, or maybe i should write down a python
script to do it? If so, is it hard to do?
Tnx in advance
