The link does not actually answer any of my questions.
Who is working on it? Not answered, expect to say that some of the banshee
guys have contributed, doesn't tell me who is leading or drive the effort,
my guess is no one is.
Where is the code? Not answered at all
Where will it be released? Not answered, expect to say someone tried it a
while ago and it didn't work.
All these other binding GUI projects are well and good but none of them are
released and packaged for Debian.
