Bug#769173: RFA: libmusicbrainz5 -- Library to access the MusicBrainz.org database

Package: wnpp
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org,
pkg-multimedia-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org, andy@gently.org.uk,


libmusicbrainz5 is pulled into many GNOME desktops as a dependency,
hence the high popcon stats:

There is currently an RC bug, a couple of non-free files crept in at
some point, upstream has removed them but had to make API changes.
Somebody adopting the package may need to consider a transition.


This package relies on a web service API from MusicBrainz and somebody
familiar with that may be able to support the package more easily.

I think this is a very worthwhile package, it is part of the eco-system
of open source alternatives to cloud-based music services.  I originally
helped with this package to support the packaging of flactag.  However,
I have a large portfolio of other packages where I have more in-depth
experience and ongoing development work hence I'm putting this one
up for adoption in the hope that somebody will focus on it.
