Purpose

This page is a work memo for jazz oriented editors. It contains a list of (in)famous jazz collections, providing exhaustive details that don't belong to releases annotations, status of the collections in MB (complete, partial, totally absent), "state" of the releases (borked, tidied, ...), links to relevant resources (both wiki label pages and external), editing information (naming schemes, ...) and also tasks and todos.
