See my previous post for the explanation of this series. Basically, I’m throwing ideas out and hoping I get a bite (aka volunteer) to make them happen.
Issue: Rhythmbox should have full iPod support. Banshee, Exaile, and Amarok already do - why not RB? Yes, I know you can play your music with it, and even transfer files, but when transferring files Rhythmbox does not update the database, making them unplayable by the device itself. I’m guessing this is probably relatively simple to fix, especially if the different players are all able to share similar code for these kinds of tasks, but I guess I don’t really know.
