For those of you who think noatun must dominate the multimedia world!
I need help with testing dub in kdeaddons so I can get it into the release
without as many bugs as it now has!
What are the complications? Dub is a dynamic playlist, because it works
directly on the filesystem. So changes to the file system must not corrupt
operation, but I understood that wasn't as easy as it seemed. There is at
least one bug that leads to a crash which I couldn't isolate yet.
How to test it: dub has basically 4 code paths corresponding to dir/shuffle
settings. If you can test it out on large dir trees and on extreme cases like
empty dirs, dir with empty subdirs only, etc. In none of these cases, it
should hang or cause a crash. I think I got the extreme cases okay, but in
the case of dynamic changes as mentioned above it's not as smart as it ought
If you find bugs, please report to kde bts!
PS: Suggestions/wishlists for UI, etc. are welcome, of course.
