The problem becomes, and naturally so, that TDE may need to become upstream for the various components of Amarok, or Amarok itself it upsteam support is gone. There was a lengthy discussion on the openSuSE list about Amarok and specifically whether a "better alternatives exist.". There were none found that provided the traditional features or behavior of Amarok, which mitigates in favor of patching Amarok and continuing to offer it. There were always shortcomings in the supposed better alternatives that either required hacks or workarounds, even for behavior as trivial as continual play. Just another angle to consider. The openSuSE list discussion was within the past 2-weeks, though I must have deleted that thread. -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
