Nightingale is a fork of Songbird, a media player once created by people from Winamp/Yahoo/Mozilla. Nightingale is developed by a small community aiming cross-platform support particularly GNU/Linux. We will talk about how we run a fork, manage contributions and on what we work for to improve our player.
