To be absolutely honest, I'd be happier if the existing applications worked.
For example, I've tried ccPublisher with MP3s under Windows, and found the
following killer flaws:
1. Existing tags are deleted...why? This makes the application useless.
2. The application often fails, by failing to display a Next button when the
process has not been completed.
Less important, but still irritating, the application launches part way off
my screen, so every time I use it, I have to move it.
I'd try and fix the program myself, but I can't find the source code; this
is probably due to my unfamiliarity with Python.
I'm sorry to say this, but I don't think the Creative Commons software
development process has been properly considered. At the very least, the
application is poorly thought through, the user interface is poorly
designed, and the testing is incomplete. I don't know what kind of project
management you apply, but it doesn't seem to be working.
Bluntly, the existing applications appear amateur, making Creative Commons
appear amateur. I do not believe this is an image Creative Commons should be

I've created a page in the CC Developer Wiki where I'd like to begin a
list/discussion of new tools, applications, and extensions people would
like to see CC support in. This page is just intended to serve as a
"white board" for a collective, long-term brainstorming session. As
ideas become fleshed out or implementations begin, they can split off
onto their own page(s). Go ahead, add your ideas at
