[Rhythmbox-devel] Patch for DiscogsCoverArtSearch.py

Hi all,

As disconcerned as I was that DiscogsCoverArtSearch plugin didn't seem
to fetch all the cover arts I tried to fix it. What I found was that the
script discards all the secondary cover art images, but there are quit a
lot albums at Discogs that have only secondary cover arts.
So I modified the script a bit to also include secondary cover art (only
when there is no primary cover art).

Could you please take a look at the patchfile I included with this
I have no clue where to turn to but to this mailing-list.

Thanks in advance.

With kind regards,

If a 'train station' is where a train stops, what's a 'workstation'?
