Amarok: test unconfirmed bugs with the most recent git version

completed by: Mayank Madan

mentors: Edward "hades" Toroshchin, Myriam Schweingruber

Amarok currently has several open bug reports that have not been confirmed yet. The student should try to reproduce these bugs with the given steps and eventually ask for more details if the steps indicated in the bug are insufficient to reproduce the bug.

The tests should be made with the latest git version, as we are currently in the bug fixing period and a lot of changes are committed on a daily basis. Please see the links below on how to get the most recent git version in a local build.

Some of the bugs might need a special setup the student doesn't have (special media devices or a payed subscription to a service), these bugs should be skipped and the student should indicate the reasons in the report.


Build instructions:

List of unconfirmed bugs:


The student should have logic thinking, be able to follow exact steps. Previous experience with Amarok is a plus.

Task completion:

A list of the tested bugs with the findings as an *.ods or Google Drive spreadsheet. All findings should also be added as a comment to the bug report, specifying the exact git version obtained with 'git describe'
