I want to look at this for the ISO.

However, can you use the source link as the default too often picks a geo-limited mirror

There's also 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

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.

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.
