Why periodic scanning? Why not use Inotify?

    As asked in the topic, why bother with periodic scanning of the music folder? After an initial scan, wouldn’t using Inotify be a much more elegant solution? To me, this situation sounds like exactly the type of thing Inotify was created for. You’d get instant response to files in the library changing, being deleted, whatever.

    I have no idea what implementing Inotify would take. Though I cant imagine it being a huge hurdle, for all I know it could be completely unrealistic a proposal.

    Right. But that discussion is 2 years old. Surely with the passage of such an amount of time, it’s worth another look at the options, yes?
