I have commented on the upstream GitHub issue with a request for
assistance from the author. I am inclined to wait perhaps a week for a
reply. If no reply is received, or a negative reply, then it would seem
that declaring ampache unsupported might be the only alternative. If
the author is willing to help, then a new assessment can be made based
on the scope of the changes.
