Is there a "best practices" or SOP list documented anywhere?
In my brief exposure to this excellent software a page of one-liners would have saved me several hours of initiation. Some things I've done right long before coming into the affair, like 1 album : 1 directory. Some things my experience led me to the general area. But some things are going to be SOP from here on out, like Rockbox>Settings>General Settings>Database>Update Now. I get how some frequent tasks need to be buried deep, it is logical, but a hint would take a few degrees off the learning slope.
Another thing is to recommend people find a good tagging utility and take up the hobby of tagging their own collection even if they use a service to start the process. Heaven forbid if they don't turn off "retrieve data from the internet" in most players. I've been tagging music for years and I'm certain bringing that intimacy into this process was critical.
After I update to Rockbox v.2 I'll check in, probably with nothing but praise.
