TL;DR: big changes are coming, and your feedback as an instance owner, user or creator would be hugely appreciated to ensure we're doing the right think!
@nepfag Well, some people do ;)
@hj in the first iteration, there is no deduplication planned, but I was thinking about a warning of some kind if one track you're uploading is already available in a library you have access to, with a way to bypass it if you want.
I don't think keeping the file structure is possible when you're uploading via a web browser, however, we could imagine a client you would install on your machine to sync your libraries accross devices that would enable this use case!
@hj I think I remember that. I cannot find the ticket again though, but I've been thinking more and more about allowing user to add custom tags to artists / albums / tags, which would be very flexible.
That would be a first step toward more personal classification of the music. What do you think?
@hj sure, there is no rush! Thank you for taking the time :)
@hj thanks! I understand what you mean, the parallel with WordPress pretty much sums it up.
However, I'm not sure if this categorization should occur at the user level and be specific to each user, or be shared on the instance/federation?
@hj i like that idea and cannot wait to try it!
