Status: This Page is Glorious History!

The content of this page either is bit-rotted, or has lost its reason to exist due to some new features having been implemented in MusicBrainz, or maybe just described something that never made it in (or made it in a different way), or possibly is meant to store information and memories about our Glorious Past. We still keep this page to honor the brave editors who, during the prehistoric times (prehistoric for you, newcomer!), struggled hard to build a better present and dreamed of an even better future. We also keep it for archival purposes because possibly it still contains crazy thoughts and ideas that may be reused someday. If you're not into looking at either the past or the future, you should just disregard entirely this page content and look for an up to date documentation page elsewhere.

If a release is a Split Release by two or more artists, and if the release has no given name but only features the artist names,

the Release Title should be as follows:

ArtistA / ArtistB

Please note that the Release Artist must be set to Various Artists according to Release Artist Style.

This is an Official Style Guideline.

Note that this is space, slash, space!

If the release has a title of its own, then use that title.

There is an actual example of a Split Release where both halves are given a title (presumably by their respective artists). In this case use Multiple Title Style to format the title.
