I live in Vancouver, Canada. Our family has a collection of some 500 CDs which are gradually being ripped, encoded, and tagged. Most are opera and classical, but there are other genres in there too.... I really care about having accurate metadata on my opera tracks, because that's an important part of having it show up well in the music players.

What I'm seized of at MusicBrainz

  • Get good metadata tags for the CD collection I'm ripping.
  • Figure out how enter metadata for my CD collection efficiently.
  • Improving documentation of existing features. Write howto documents recording what I've learned.
  • Maybe write some better data entry UIs or bots to systematically clean up existing data.
  • Look at the ObjectModel and notions like work (composition) as applicable to ClassicalMusic, OperaMusic and MusicalTheatre.
  • Figure out what MusicBrainz is trying to be: "This site is intended to be a free, on-line encyclopedia of music information." (GeneralFAQ), but that still leaves me with questions.
  • Is MB attempting to build a database of true facts and relationships about music separate from particular recordings, and/or a database of facts and relationships about recordings, and/or a service that produces useful metadata tags for digital music files?
