directly emailed the developers about this, but got no response, so I
thought I'd post this to the list in hopes of getting a hearing on this:
I wish to propose the following patch to rakarrack (patch file attach)
to improve Bank Manager, or at least remedy frustrations I have had
with it. :-)
Currently, when the Bank Manager window is opened, only the configured
\"User Directory\" (from Preferences) is scanned, which defaults to
\"/usr/share/rakarrack\". When \"User Directory\" is changed to point
to a different directory (as I do), Bank Manager is no longer able to
load Default, Extra, and Extra1. My proposed patch makes the following
a) When Bank Manager is opened, both DATADIR and \"User Directory\" are
scanned to populate the \"User Banks\" dropdown list. Full pathnames
of all bank files found are stored in class RKRGUI and refreshed
whenever the Bank Manager Window is closed and re-opened.
b) When a new bank is loaded (from any directory) with \"Load Bank\"
when the Bank Manager window is open, that bank is added to the Bank
Manager Window dropdown list. However, this bank is lost from the list
when the Bank Manager window is closed.
If this meets with your approval, I would like to commit this patch to
git and become a contributor to rakarrack.
