      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.

      last.fm tags integration, including adding last.fm tags within amarok and pulling tags from last.fm

      Amarok uses a custom feature called "Labels" to add bits of semantic data to tracks, these "labels" are essentially the same as last.fm tags. It would be greats if you could automatically pull in last.fm tags for a certain track/artist.

      Also, being able to add last.fm tags to tracks/artists would be very helpful (see the last.fm desktop client).

      Amarok with Nepomuk

      I think that amarok will be better if you add an opcion to integrer semantic data how the "stars", album, artist, or lyrics. Nepomuk shuld be a fantastic opcion to final user. I think that is difficult but only one opcion, It shouldn't yes. Excusme by my English.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.
