Default ITP: taglib-rusxmms -- TagLib + RusXMMS patch

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

--- Please fill out the fields below. ---

Package name: taglib-rusxmms
Version: 1.5
Upstream Author: Scott Wheeler <wheeler@kde.org>
URL: http://ktown.kde.org/~wheeler/taglib
License: LGPL-2.1
Description: TagLib Audio Meta-Data Library

RusXMMS Project
===============

Originally, the project was aimed to provide means to work with multiple
encodings of the same language through adapting encoding of ID3 tags, M3U and
PLS playlists (including file names) to local settings on-the-fly. Both the
tag reading and writing back using any selected encoding was supported.
Nowadays there are library available providing the same functionality for
almost any program with just a few lines of code. The library is not limited
to ID3 tags, it can be useful for any program working with small titles or
file names in different languages and encodings. The patches for several
music players, ID3 tag libraries and some other programs are available on the
project page.

Default ITP: taglib-rusxmms -- TagLib + RusXMMS patch

Twas brillig at 15:09:32 30.11.2008 UTC+03 when ivan1986@list.ru did gyre and gimble:

i> Package name: taglib-rusxmms

The name is *very* misleading, due to

i> The library is not limited to ID3 tags, it can be useful for any
i> program working with small titles or file names in different
i> languages and encodings.

i> The patches for several music players, ID3 tag libraries and some
i> other programs are available on the project page.

Why the author does not cooperate with those projects? "Patches" means
those are not applied upstream. Using Debian to achieve this is not very
wise idea.
