The source is right there for everybody to see:

I think we don't expect people to search such info in a repository?
It's not user friendly.

Why would users need to know the default list of radio stations?

Comment 6 Jiri Prajzner 2018-06-11 08:36:54 UTC
Convenience. Maybe we could include it at least in release notes?

I still don't understand why it's useful. Can you please explain why it would be useful for end-users to have?

Comment 8 Jiri Prajzner 2018-06-12 08:07:06 UTC
from my experience with rb, the list of preset radio stations changes quite often and people may have their favorite rs that is note present anymore in release x and they want to put it back but don't remember the url.
i think that release notes would do? if not, please feel free to close.

Comment 9 Bastien Nocera 2018-06-12 08:31:14 UTC
We usually keep all the stations if 1) they still exist 2) they still exist in a format that's playable using free and open codecs.

If a radio station disappears, it means that the radio station doesn't stream anymore, or it only streams in a format that we don't support.

A way for users to get their station back, if it were to still stream but only in MP3 format for example, would be to get a service like TuneIn added to grilo-plugins, so it appears in rhythmbox. See:
for the upstream request for a TuneIn plugin.
