We want to encourage the widespread adoption of the ID3 chapter specification so that we can reach more people with our enhanced podcasts. Currently, the only client for these is the iTunes/iPod platform. This limits the people we can reach and as a result we're less motivated to develop these services.

>I am a professional  Java developer based in the UK and I manage the http://jaudiotagger.dev.java.net which aims among other things to fully replicate the all versions of the ID3 specification in Java, much is already there and it is used in a number of projects. At some point I would like to add the chapter specification but it is not my top priority at the moment but if there was any funding available for this I could prioritise the chapter specification.

We may be able to contribute some programmer effort, if that would help.
