amaroK tags script fetches your tags from for artists, albums, and tracks. It stores them as id3v2 COMM tags in your music files and appends them to the comment for the given track in amaroK's collection where they can be used to contruct smart playlists.

So far this script only fetches your tags, it doesn't syncronize changes you make locally back to Probably this feature should wait until the implementation of "labels" which is coming in amaroK 1.5.

Also so far it is only possible to fetch tags for a selection within a playlist. The other context sub-menus just provide helpful messages saying that this feature isn't implimented yet.

As usual this software comes with no warrenty, it might eat your lunch, etc.. That said it works for me.

I owe a large debt of gratitude to Miguel Angel Alvarez whoes amaroK Replaygain script served as the skeleton of this one. Thanks Miguel!

amaroK 1.4.1
Python Mutagen

What's New in This Release:
The script can now fetch tags for artist/albums/tracks with non-ASCII characters.
TODO: Unfortunately the pop display shows the characters munged, but.
