When using the “Feat. Artists in Titles” plugin I noticed that it isn’t changing (eg truncating) artistsort and albumartistsort tags, leaving featured artists in these tags but not in the artist and albumartist tags themselves. Confirmed by looking at the plugin code that neither featartistsintitles.py nor featartist.py touch the sort tags at all.
Ping @outsidecontext, I was told you were an author of the plugin. Apologies if this isn’t the best place to report the issue.
I think https://github.com/metabrainz/picard-plugins/issues would be the best place to file this.
It’s now filed here: https://github.com/metabrainz/picard-plugins/issues/62
I have a fixed script in my repository as well as my own script which removes featured artists completely (neither in artist, albumartist or any sort orders leaving the artists tag as the only multiple artist tag)
Hey @NobahdiAtoll Note that Picard’s plugins are actually already stored in a git repository:
You’re very(!!) welcome to make PRs against that repository both for new plugins and also for fixes to existing ones.
To be honest I’m not at all sure how git works except save knowing how to make commits, i was barely familiar with svn before googlecode died. i switched to github cause git seems to be the preffered source control management now.
pull requests are beyond my knowledge so far.
Very good !!
I personally find that pull requests are fairly easy to deal with most of the time. You can read more about them at
