After having spent the better part of the last week re-tagging my entire mp3 library with a new tagger script based on the script discussed at Sharing my renaming script I realized that I had used a four digit year based on %originaldate% for all re-issue releases when I wanted to use one based on %date%. As I don’t have the slightest idea how to search my files based on the metadata inside them I will have to once again load every single release back into Picard.
I am however hoping to find a way to modify the removeperfectalbums.py plugin to remove all releases where %originaldate% is either not set or is equal to %date%. This would save me from having to process all the releases which don’t require any change. I’m not exactly sure how to do this, as it is beyond my limited programing skills. I was hoping someone might be able to help me figure it out.
I was going to post a link to the removeperfectalbums.py plugin but it no longer seems to be available on the plugin download page at http://picard.musicbrainz.org/plugins/. As it still functions perfectly with the current MusicBrainz Picard release I’m not sure why it isn’t still available.
