Description Michel Lind 2008-05-02 21:10:06 UTC
Spec URL: http://salimma.fedorapeople.org/for_review/music/vagalume.spec
SRPM URL: http://salimma.fedorapeople.org/for_review/music/vagalume-0.5.1-1.fc9.src.rpm
**NOTE** vagalume uses GStreamer, so while not usable out-of-the-box without an MP3 decoder, it does not break any Fedora guidelines. Let me know if I should add a README.Fedora stating that users are responsible for finding a way to play MP3 themselves (presumably we could point to the free MP3 codec from Fluendo)

Vagalume is a Last.fm client based on Gnome, and specially designed to
work in the Maemo platform.

Vagalume has the following features:

   * It plays Last.fm streams using the Last.fm protocol v1.2
   * It can play any Last.fm radio: personal, neighbours, loved
     tracks, or any other arbitrary URL.
   * It can download free tracks
   * It implements the Audioscrobbler Realtime Submission Protocol
     v1.2, specifically:
      * Now Playing information
      * Scrobbling of tracks that you listen
      * Love/Ban ratings
   * It displays the album cover of the track being played
   * The user can tag artists, tracks and albums
   * The user can send recommendations to other users
   * The user can add tracks to their playlist

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2008-05-02 22:18:16 UTC
Does this do anything useful when you don't have the codecs?  Because, say,
amarok can do a lot of that while it's playing ogg tracks.

Comment 2 Michel Lind 2008-05-03 04:12:37 UTC
Could potentially be useful if/when Last.fm serves out files in other formats.
Otherwise -- well, it can play any arbitrary lastfm URL, so if someone
reimplements the protocol and serves out Ogg Vorbis tracks, Vagalume should
handle it just fine.

Comment 3 Michel Lind 2008-05-19 16:59:53 UTC
Updated to 0.6; can now update status message. Will submit to Livna if the
package is not considered proper for Fedora.

Comment 5 Hans de Goede 2008-05-20 17:58:47 UTC
I've asked Spot and he agrees with Jason that since this package is not usable
without non-free stuff, its not ok for Fedora. Closing as can't fix.


Can you add a comment to the livna review that the review should continue there,
I don't have the bug number handy.
