Reply To: The case for reviving Firefly


I’d like to get involved in clearing the bugs in the existing codebase. For me it’d be a bit of a “project”, my coding skills are varied but practice is intermittent.

I use Firefly daily, it serves up my FLAC library via iTunes and the significant problems I’ve encountered are:
1) m3u file parsing doesn’t manage extended character set (é, ó, etc)
2) FLACs over a certain length aren’t transcoded – it’s somewhere around 18mins
otherwise, the SVN1696 build has been running stable over the last 18 months of heavy use.

I’d find it useful if someone could provide a guide around the source, how fixes would be reviewed, etc.
