The list is working, I see your messages come through.

But following this up because it has come to my attention that far
more than the plug-in created by my friend has stopped working
properly. Even the Alternative Toolbar, which is packaged as
default and seems to be the most suggested plug-in for many
people's issues on how Rythmbox works as default, does not work
properly any more! (Try dragging to reorganise column order with
latest version.) Surely the default plugins are something you don't
want to break..... Is anything going to  be done about getting the
program working properly again? I had hoped it might have just
happened by now but months later and the situation is still borked!

It seems like there isn't much volunteer time available for Rhythmbox
maintenance at the moment. Jonathan is/was the only active maintainer
in recent times, but the last time he merged a patch in GitLab was 6
months ago.

This raises an interesting question of how the project can continue.
Software projects work best when there is a dedicated maintenance
team to review and merge patches. This requires a good knowledge of
the codebase and a continual dedication of time, though. Is anyone
interested in taking on such a role?

Reports of broken plugins should be sent to the authors of those
plugins if they're not part of Rhythmbox. The Alternative Toolbar isn't
part of Rhythmbox, so, bar bugs in the core, there's really nothing for
Rhythmbox maintainers to do. Which might explain the lack of response.
