Bug#335901: O: pyxmms-remote -- command-line interface to XMMS
I cannot work on PyXMMS-remote anymore and am hereby orphaning it.
Description: command-line interface to XMMS
PyXMMS-remote allows you to control (or start, or terminate) an XMMS
session from your shell's command-line (or a program, or a MIME-aware
application, or whatever you want).
There are a lot of queries and actions you can perform with PyXMMS-remote.
Here are some examples: play or pause the current playlist entry, stop
playing, jump to a playlist entry, add files or URLs to the playlist, get
or set the volume, balance or the equalizer settings, toggle the main or
playlist window, end the XMMS session...
PyXMMS-remote is written in the Python programming language and uses
(through PyXMMS, packaged as python-xmms in Debian), the xmms_remote_*
functions provided by the libxmms library, hence its name.
Note: I am also upstream for PyXMMS-remote. As for PyXMMS, there is no
real urgency to take that part over too.
It would be nice to merge pyxmms-remote into the python-xmms
binary package. The prerequisite to do this properly is to merge
the two upstream packages; the only issue has to do with the
build systems (PyXMMS uses distutils, whereas PyXMMS-remote uses
autoconf and automake for automatic detection of programs like
texi2html in order to build its documentation...).
