Is it safe to tamper with tags of files in ~/.ubuntuone/Purchased from Ubuntu One, if the folder is synced locally ?

It is generally safe to edit the tags, but doing so will result in files being resynchronized to everywhere you are syncing them.

I edited the tags for one mp3 file. On the ubuntu one web, under 'My Music' i see the new version when the current view is 'Songs'. But the Artists and Albums view show the former values of artist/title/album. – epsicot Sep 16 '12 at 21:18
Then please file a bug about that, at and specify what is wrong, preferably including screen captures showing the problem (you can crop them to hide extra info you don't want to share, if necessary). – dobey Sep 16 '12 at 23:31
Today I checked again, and all listings are up to date ! – epsicot Sep 18 '12 at 20:00
