Finished MusicBrainz Development Work
- Status: This page has ben superceded by the timeline feature in our BugTracker. Please see bugs.musicbrainz.org/timeline for work after 2005.
Please do not add any new items to this page.
Subscribe to Editors
- SubscribeToEditor -- choose a user and be subscribed to her/his edits the same way as one can be subscribed to an artist right now. Finally done by murdos.
- RobertKaye has done some heavy coding on AdvancedRelationships and worked together with DonRedman who IdeaChampioned a SimpleAdvancedRelationshipsInterface. They have then set up an initial set of AdvancedRelationshipTypes and then released the wole stuff to the world! AdvancedRelationships allows the MusicBrainz users to define new and flexible relationships betwen more or less any data element ("artist a and artist b are married", "artist c performed on track d" etc.). It was part of the April 2005 server update.
Some Simple Improvements
- 2005-01-08, DaveEvans:
- This weekend I've been hacking on a few simple improvements:
- * A way for automods to temporarily drop their privileges, thus allowing them to enter a change which will go to the vote
- * A new preference, "When I vote on a moderation, mail me all future notes for that moderation" (I still need to test this one)
- * Feature Request #1038665: Display the number of subscribers for each artist. Also, a new preference: "Allow other users to see my subscribed artists", and new pages to see artists to which a user is subscribed, and users who subscribe to a given artist.
Memcached, Persistent MusicBrainzIdentifier``s and InterNationalization
- DaveEvans is working on making much better use of memcached, including the use of pgmemcache. I'm also working on making Persistent MusicBrainzIdentifier
s (so that if, say, two artists are merged, then the ID of the old artist still finds the new artist). Plus, rudimentary support for specifying the language of each release has started.
"Add Disc ID" Edit
- DaveEvans implemented AddDiscIDEdits. Like AddTRMsEdits (and others), these are auto-approved edits; but having the data added via a moderation provides an audit trail of changes. Included in the November 2004 server update.
Artist Annotations and Release Annotations
- MatthiasFriedrich created the first working implementation of ArtistAnnotation
s and ReleaseAnnotation
s. This feature allows editors to add free-text annotations to artists and releases. DaveEvans finished the feature and released it in the November 2004 server update.
Official Style Guide and Documentation in the Wiki
- TarragonAllen and DonRedman have been moving the OfficialStyleGuidelines to the Wiki; this project will probably include the incorporation of some of the ProposedStyleGuidelines.
- @alex has also moved OfficialDocumentation (OfficialMusicBrainzDocumentation) from the main pages to the MusicBrainzDocumentation section of the Wiki. We are now RestructuringTheDocumentation to update it here and then move it back to static HTML on the main site (or preferably, modify the main site to link to (or display) the Wiki versions of the pages wherever feasible).
- A new CapitalizationStandard that includes InterNationalization has been worked out. (At that time the OfficialStyleGuide did not reference them yet. Now that the OfficialStyleGuidelines are on the Wiki, these are slowly getting linked in.)
Replication Mechanics for Mirrors
- Most AmazonMismatches are now fixed. As MusicBrainz is now a TaxExemptOrganization, we can even make money with AmazonMatching.
New Tagger Icons
- We built a new icon set for the MusicBrainzTagger. The current tagger uses these icons now and the IconSuggestions page only shows the past discussions.
2003 and Older
- Tom Hull's CapitalizationProposal was accepted and made the CapitalizationStandard, along with various common acronyms (DJ etc.).
- Confirmation of email addresses went live in June 2003.
- Notes about the process of upgrading the server from Perl 5.6 to 5.8 (in 2003?)
- Things to test before the ModerationClasses2 branch went live (in 2002?).
- Rob and Dave fleshing out the structure of the site just prior to launch (in 2001?) -- see SiteMenuArrangement for a more recent proposal (May 2004, updated Sept. 2004).
- Rather outdated (or historical) list of suggestions. I am not even sure how much of this has been implemented.
- Archived discussions (implemented, dismissed, or outdated). This page dates frome before we did RestructureTheWiki and is really really old.
