> Do you know why it isn't accepted?
I know that adding an extra dependency is not helping too much the cause,
specially adding a dependency to id3lib which is a nightmare to work with.

On irc I got told by one of the gst developers that he plans to write a proper
ID3 tag writer that will not use an external library. Obviously, Gstreamer
needs his precious resources somewhere else and his plugin has never seen the
light. In the meanwhile there's no plugin in Gstreamer that addresses the ID3
tagging issue.

> Who decides?
I don't know who decides for the inclusion of new plugins. I tried various
times to ask for comments on the bug on irc and I got told that this will be
checked but nothing so far.

The plugin is released as Open Source and could be packaged by Linux
distributions independently of what's provided by Gstreamer. Gstreamer is
modular enough to accept foreign plugins easily. What would be nice is that
people with "deficient" MP3 players can enjoy proper tagging. I don't mind how
they get the plugin nor which plugin provides this functionality.
