Hi Amarok devs, hi John

Adding Stephan Binner to the loop as he's one of the KDE package
maintainers @ SUSE.

I'm maintaining uncrippled/full-fledged amarok packages for SUSE Linux
in my very widely used package repository for SUSE Linux and I'm
currently wondering whether I should keep magnatune support in my amarok
builds or not (don't flame, please keep on reading ;)).

The reason is that it is not really clear how the whole thing is
handled. Most specifically, whether e.g. credit card information can be
seen by people from the amarok developer team in some magnatune
transaction history or something.

It's not that I'm paranoid nor that I'm implying any bad intentions
but.. well.. IMO it must be as transparent as possible ;)

I couldn't find any detailed information about the transaction process
and how the personal data of the users is secured.

Could you please take a few minutes to enlighten us about it ? (or point
me to a link if I didn't look hard enough)

Thanks for your time.
