Proposed Set Track Times from DiscID Feature

Status: a similar feature has been implemented with SetReleaseDurationsEdit.

As part of the CalculateTrackTimes proposal, I suggest a new EditType that would recalculate the track times on an album using one of the attached DiscIDs.

Current Mechanism

Currently, track times are set automatically in some circumstances (see Current Mechanism in CalculateTrackTimes), but this edit is not recorded as a moderation.


I propose that the new edit type would be employed in two ways.

  1. It would be applied by ModBot whenever an album gets a single DiscID as described in CalculateTrackTimes.
  2. It could be a manually triggered by Editors to pick the best DiscID on albums with several.

The edit would be an AutoEdit for all users (including ModBot). The edit would provide an audit trail, and if it's applied incorrectly, it's easy for another Editor to select a different DiscID.

Interface picking which DiscID

A radio button could be added to the right hand end of each line of the DiscID detail table on the album details page. Then add a "Set Track times from this DiscID" button.
