Matthias Friedrich (yalaforge) finds himself with little spare time on his hands these days and has asked me to find a new maintainer for the Python MusicBrainz library (pymusicbrainz2) and for the C based libdiscid library. While libdiscid doesn’t require immediate work, the pymb2 library needs to have support for Release Groups (from the 2009-05-24 server update) added in.
Matthias suggested that anyone interested in becoming the maintainer should write a patch to add the needed release groups support. I think this is a good idea — anyone interested?
If so, please post a comment!
And thanks for your hard work on these projects Matthias!
UPDATE: Our Help Wanted page has been updated to reflect our current needs.

libdiscid has need support for reading ISRCs and barcode
I needed release group info for the app I’m working on, so I have a local copy of pymb2 with release groups implemented. I’m unsure of how fully/correctly they’re implemented, but they seem to work. I need to look over it and test it a little more (not to mention 3-way merge it into the latest SVN snapshot), but I plan to submit a patch in a bug soon.
However, as much as I hate to shoot down Matthias’s idea, I don’t have any interest in becoming the maintainer.
That’s cool! Can you please submit the patch to http://codereview.musicbrainz.org ?
