Musync is an command-line interface tagger which uses mutagen to read 
meta data from music-files, and tries to create a sane file structure 
from the collected tags.

planned in future releases. Use an external program like PicardTagger 
for this purpose.

Musync is not an interactive tool, it will never prompt for anything but 
try to make intelligent choices from the arguments received at execution.

I'm in desperate need of third party testers to try this out for errors,

music-library for the sake of organization.

I use this tool myself, since i find gui-apps annoying and haven't found 
a reasonable alternative to this.

theres also instructions on how to get a snapshot (using svn), but I've 
also created a small http-wrapper so you can download the snapshot in a

0.3 Beta is just an internal version count, don't take it too seriously

Have fun with my blood and tears.


* the original though of musync was to sync DAP's (digital audio 
players) with a music library, which it still does marvelously. That and 
a bit more.
