Every month or so, a new artist or project is chosen to be the subject of the Cleanup of the Month (previously 'Collaboration of the Month'). The aim is to bring the efforts of the community to a focus on providing the most complete and correct discography possible for a single artist, or to take care of a cleanup project too large for any one editor to handle.

Each collaboration is organised and discussed in its own wiki page and forum topic.
