Bug Description

I encountered a problem, where the current playlist (queue of tracks to be played) disappears and does not appear again. I managed to close the tab with last playlist, then - even after exaile restart - playlist on the right side of the window would not appear (there was empty space instead of playlist widget).

This could have something to do with writing translated(!) colum names for column widths to configuration file [i'm using exaile with pl_PL locales].

I got back to a useful state after removing all translated lines from configuration file, though that might not be the right reason...

After searching through exaile Trac system, looks that the reason is:

I encountered the same bug with 0.2.10 Ubuntu version.
I think I tried to change columns place, and the playlist disapeared.
I haven't test the SVN version 'cause the link given by Wit is dead.

I can confirm this bug using Ubuntu Exaile version

I know there was an existing Exaile bug in Trac for this, but since Exaile moved to Launchpad I have been unable to find out what bug that is. If someone can find it and either duplicate or set the status correctly, I'd appreciate that.

I think it's bug 172318 - playlist empty when adding songs.
This bug is present on Hardy and it's importance should be raised because it makes Exaile unusable. Installing Exaile 0.2.13 fixed the problem. Probably this version should be backported to Hardy.

If this is still needed, I have the time to do it but don't quite know what exactly needs to be done. I saw the chain of bugs that have been listed on launchpad and that didn't help me much either.

Am new but am ready to do it with some guidance. A changelog at least to help me backport.

You have to be a MOTU and do a SRU if you want to backport, InsClusoe.

Steve, Thanks for your comment.

I don't understand the process listed here and

I can make the changes and give it to a MOTU/exaile developer. They can take it from there if interested. It probably depends on how many users are on Hardy and want to install a backport rather than upgrade to 0.2.14 which is noticeably better. I just thought this is probably a good opportunity to get acquainted with the code.

I can possibly put it on PPA.

I think you should check Exaile's PPA. If they don't have 0.2.14 for Hardy
I'm sure they'll be happy to have it packaged.
