"medium" is perhaps not the best word to use. "Medium" is a new entity type in NGS, so this will become a bit confusing as to whether you're talking about the medium or the Medium. BrianSchweitzer 02:30, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

I disagree. I think they're one and the same and that it's totally accurate to relate a release format with the physical medium the release is issued on. --navap 05:13, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Re: "Each attribute is optional, though the more complete a Release entry is, the better." Technically, this isn't true. Script and language both are manditory, though they each have an "I don't know" which is functionally equivalent. Neither can be left blank (since ~2006/2007), however.

"Multiple catalog numbers may be entered." No discussion here, however, of when this would actually be appropriate. If you need some example help here, the place this issue first came up was when luks and I were trying to handle Varese Sarabande releases which had 1 release but 2 cat #s. Se the annotation for VS ( http://musicbrainz.org/label/44f4d815-bf54-4f56-b704-72a196c6bd58.html ): "Releases between VSD-6200/302 066 200 2 and VSD-6499/302 066 499 2 always received a 302 06x xxx 2 catalog number, but only some were also assigned a VSD-6xxx number." This was confirmed (by me) with VS via phone. The mason RE approach was ugly to handle these, as it makes it appear as if those applicable releases had 2 releases, each with 1 RE, rather than the correct 1 release with 2 REs.
