But, but, but -- can a Metadata Source plugin even write to custom columns. The fact that none of them do makes me wonder if it is because they cannot. David and/or Kovid would know.
That's the thing. The metadata source plugin doesn't actually update the library. It extracts the details and passes them back to the metadata download process. That merges the results and presents them to you. After that, the library is updated. I do not believe this will handle custom columns.


Edit: Should have refreshed before posting.
