Allow adding a new medium to an existing release when doing a web CD lookup, or importing a CDStub, or importing a FreeDB release

 Description  « Hide

Let's say you have disc 2 of a 2 CDs release, and that only disc 1 is in database: http://test.musicbrainz.org/cdtoc/attach?toc=1+1+63040+150&filter-release.query=Le+Loup+et+les+Sept+Biquets (this is dummy example: discid is in fact for disc 1, but let's imagine its for disc 2)

You can't add a new medium to an existing release, currently you can only:

  • attach your discid to an existing medium (which is wrong here)
  • add a new release (that you'll then have to merge with the existing release)

Here's a perfect test case: a 10 CDs boxset available as CDStubs: http://test.musicbrainz.org/search?query=Marcel+Proust+Albertine+disparue&type=cdstub&limit=10

It's currently a pain to import in MB, I hope that with this ticket and NGS it will be much easier

Not done yet, see feedback on code review: http://codereview.musicbrainz.org/r/1110/

EDIT: issues on code review should all be fixed in the current version in next / on test.musicbrainz.org

This is only partially fixed.

The ticket is titled "Allow adding a new medium to an existing release when doing a web CD lookup, or importing a CDStub, or importing a FreeDB release", and you can't add a new medium to an existing release WHEN:

These 3 pages allow you to create a new release, but not to append a new medium to an existing release.

To make it clear, this feature might be postponed after NGS release, but it's not fixed.

I have done some preliminary work, but I will not be able to get this in for NGS.

So, setting to Post NGS.

My work so far (only interface changes to a single form) has been pushed to the mbs-1566-add-to-release branch on git.musicbrainz.org.

PS, murdos, thanks for the clarification.

Worth noting that for

  • importing a cd stub
  • importing a FreeDB release

you can do this through the "Add Disc" dialog in the release editor (which I think the code review was for?). But it'd be nicer if it were integrated into the flow from the other direction i.e import CD Stub/freeDb > append to release > release editor. Is integrating it into the

For "doing a web CD/TOC lookup" there no way to do this through any flow. You have to manually create the entire tracklist if there's none to base it from; then separately attach the TOC; set track lengths etc.

So that we're all clear, what remaining work does this ticket now represent?
