FreeDB is having problems. Two of the founders are leaving the project and the whole ball of wax is up for sale, with provisions for keeping it open-source and publicly supported.
Wow. Wonder what went down exactly...
The best resurrected frontend I've ever used, period.
Wow! That is truly sad. Virtually every CD ripper links to freedb for its tag info.
Apparently, the differences in ideas about future growth drove a wedge in the dev team.
I certainly hope someone is able to pick up the project and keep it alive. FreeDB is an awesome resource, especially for bootleg and rare CDs.
i had no clue what freedb was when i just went there.. after reading the previous posts though i know what it is! Sad thing to hear
