Not sure if this is the right place for such discussions, but here goes.
So I just added an artist to my Jellyfin library that has a ‘/’ in the name.
I didn’t think about this at first, but ‘/’ is understood by Jellyfin as an artist delimiter, so my artist that’s called e.g. ‘a/b’ is split into ‘a’ and ‘b’.
Of course, when the feature to use ‘/’ as separator was implemented, I imagine it must not have taken long before a classic rock fan ran into the same problem I’m having and then this happened.
So I could easily create a PR to add my artist to the exception list. My question is, should this be implemented in a different way?
I very much like that artists can be separated from the tags. ‘/’ as a separator was perhaps not the safest choice, but now it’s done and it’s probably too late to change that without breaking a lot of people’s libraries (my own included).
Should this whitelist be moved to an external file?
