I'm not asking anyone to do it for me , but the first step to taking the initiative is planning , and checking with the developers . The changes I want to make are practically almost invisible to the user :

I don't expect you to accept my changes just like that , I just need a "yeah that's good logic , if you do it right we'll implement it" , and I'll happily branch and code . I just don't have the time (or desire) to make a personal fork of RB in the case that somebody says "We're not merging that , we're happy with the .xml format we have for playlists" .
