: Yes, one release can have multiple label/catalog number pairs. And yes, these pairs will be linked to release mediums, which will effectively allow for this. [[User:LukasLalinsky|Lukáš Lalinský]] 06:44, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

One work in several tracks?

Could you clarify how one work can be split up in several tracks like in classical works? pronik 08:57, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Let's say you have work "A" and tracks "A1", "A2", "A3", then you simply add ARs between A1->A, A2->A and A3->A. LukasLalinsky 09:13, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
What about order and work part <-> track relationship? How do we know that A2 is the second part of A? pronik 11:32, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
We don't, that's a known limitation and it's meant to be solved by the next version (something like http://users.musicbrainz.org/~luks/tmp/works.png), where you explicitly specify the attribute (part number, symphony number, anything defined by the work type).

Terminology

  • Is it a good idea to rename 'modpending' to 'editpending', to catch up with current terminology? --zout 07:55, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
