Question Series info into Tags field for Stanza's Groups

Hi Kovid,

Stanza (for ipod, iphone and ipad) can list books in 3 ways: by Title, Author and Groups. The Groups field sorts based on Calibre's Tags field. Currently Stanza's Groups listing is unusable for me because each book has extensive tag info.

It would be nice to see a list of series when browsing by Groups. To do this I'd just need to overwrite the Calibre Tags field with the book's Series info. Any idea how I could do this easily?

There's no way to do it, other than to put the series info into the tag field.

Is there a way to automate this moving of Series Info to the Tags field to save me doing it manually on hundreds of books? I know code fu if that helps.

if you can write sql queries it should be easy. Just do this:

Code:
calibre-debug -c "from calibre.library import db; db = db(); db.conn.execute('the sql query'); db.conn.commit()"
