Although some releases have ASIN ARs, no cover art is displayed. E.g. http://test.musicbrainz.org/release/f1481c9b-9a9b-31a0-8b9a-086eb4f305b9
Of course the tested ASIN has a valid and official cover art, not a customer provided.
This is just because the cover art script hasn't been run to lookup cover art from Amazon. If I run the script with this release, I do indeed get cover art.
I'm also seeing this problem with http://musicbrainz.org/release/92de0f0b-79ac-4a04-b6fd-e2ec95768333 . I think the ASIN relationship to http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000018AO has been in place for months or years, though that edit doesn't appear in the edit history.
Is something preventing the cover art script from running on some Releases?
Is there a query which would show which Releases are affected?
Observed in production NGS MusicBrainz server, 2011/Oct/20.
Maybe the cover art script is trying to get cover art from the barcode despite there being a perfectly good relationship to use.
Last I heard, the cover art script was going to take quite a long time to go through the entire DB bring images back into sync with ASINs. Has it even done a full initial pass yet?
The script seems to have caught up on its backlog, but for some reason is deciding to use the "discogs" AR, which is nonsense. This is a new bug, so I've moved it to a fix version.
Are you aware of MBS-3697 and MBS-3692 though? I wonder if any retrieval attempts have worked since October 25th?
From what I can see, the cover art script is not currently running (it appears to have been killed, though I was unaware of that). Last lookup seems to have been on the 18th. I'm kicking the script off again now.
I have seen those linked tickets, which will have to be addressed soon. However, the script should still be running to catch other cover art relationships
Noted; thanks for the explanation!
Same problem here
As I said on the forums; that's probably a different issue since I don't believe MBS-3697 has been made live yet.
Fixed in 0b75389.
How long should we expect the script to take to fix all the broken artwork from this and MBS-3697?
A lot of the problematic releases were updated within the last 2 weeks. I've queued everything that was updated after Oct 25th for re-evaluation. This means that the script now has to chew through basically every single release (300k releases will be updated using the Amazon API). That's going to take about a week, though relationships added in the meantime will be updated immediately.
Oliver, in normal times, are the cover pic re-fetched from time to time?
Some ASIN were linked pre-release time, the cover pic appears later. Is MB re-checking from time to time?
Is there a way to manually re-fetch the pic?
Cover art is refreshed if it's over 2 weeks old (2 weeks since we last fetched it).
Cover art is also fetched the moment you create, edit or delete a relationship (the release gets refreshed).
