I want to look at this for the ISO.

However, can you use the source link https://cdn.download.kde.org/stable/babe/1.2.1/src/babe-1.2.1.tar.xz as the default too often picks a geo-limited mirror

There's also https://github.com/KDE/elisa which seems to be very similar. Haven't used either so no idea how they compare.

Yes there is also elisa, but it has not had a "stable" release to date, AFAIK I didn't think unstable source would be accepted for inclusion in Solus?

Babe got renamed to VVAVE
https://vvave.kde.org/beta.html

Sources are still named babe the rebranding is currently not finished.

I'll take care of this tonight if @clivejo does not precede me. I really want a decent Qt music player.

Meh I thought this was a better player. It's not very polished. Anyways, package is ready.

I was so hyped I didn't read carefully through the messages.
@sunnyflunk I would suggest you to rename the task in "vvave" and mark it as "awaiting for package updates". I don't think I have the rights to do this myself.

sunnyflunk renamed this task from babe to vvwve.

As this task has been marked Needs Maintainer for a month with nobody having stepped up to become maintainer, in addition to providing an acceptable patch for inclusion, marking as WONTFIX. Feel free to re-open when a patch has been submitted via the proper processes.

@DataDrake, I think this should instead be marked as Waiting for Upstream Update (or whatever it's called) as vvave is a babe rewrite (kinda). The current vvave player is objectively suboptimal as it's not finished.

Sorry was in the zone and didn't write what I meant to say. We've waited awhile for this already, I don't want things like this cluttering the tracker while they are in limbo for literally months.
