FLAC is an open source project and we are happy to enlist the help of anyone who wants to contribute. The preferred method for transmitting improvements is patch files (in "diff -c" format) sent to the developer mailing list
, but zipped up sources are OK. Make sure to read the FLAC goals
first; there are some thing the we don't
want added to FLAC, like copy protection and lossy compression.
High priority items are:
Support in the plugins for using the CUESHEET metadata block. The plugin should be able to see a CUESHEET in a FLAC file and present the individual tracks in the player, and fetch metadata from CDDB or CDindex by computing the hash from the CUESHEET and looking up either in a local database or over the net.
Some other "nice-to-haves":
FLAC module for Audiofile.
Streaming support in the Winamp plugin.
