Talk:Part Of Set Relationship Type

From MusicBrainz Wiki

Two questions, both mainly with classical box sets in mind: First, I am guessing that this AR allows a release to have more than one of this AR, should the same set happen to have been released multiple times with differing disc orders/omitted discs? While I definitely agree that we've needed something like this for a long time, the reason (I think) that sets as objects themselves, which would be linked to releases, were suggested was so that order within a specific set, where such overlapping/reordering occurred, could be maintained without confusion. (For an example, look at the various differing release orderings for the Philips Mozart set, here in the wiki.) -- BrianSchweitzer 05:30, 09 October 2008 (UTC)

Second, more a note than a question, also with regards to classical, when we do finally attempt to come up with a finalized revised CSG, the note above under Relationship Attributes seems quite important, with regards to the discussions held regarding releases released both singly, and as part of sets. The temporary decision reached at the time, to currently allow both to exist (dupes in all but release title), seems fully compliant with the direction given here, but should it ultimately be redecided within the final revision that such releases should be treated as 100% dupes, and thus merged (either in favor of the set title or the non-set title), then it would seem that the note here regarding Relationship Attributes would be violated. (In such a case then, disc 1 and disc 2 both available separately, neither is a bonus disc to the other, when released as a set, but both discs also are available separately. (Extending this same comment to 3, 4, 5+ disc sets as well.)). -- BrianSchweitzer 05:30, 09 October 2008 (UTC)
