I looked through the MusicBrainz database statistics and thought a new statistic to count the number of unique label clusters on MusicBrainz would be interesting:
I mean label clusters as unique groups of labels, where a labels in a group are indirectly connected to every other label through their own direct relationships. This statistic would be interesting for many reasons. We could see how many hops between one record label to another. It would also be interesting to see, truly, how many unique players are in the field based on MB’s data.
I plan to open a JIRA ticket for this, but wanted to bring it up for discussion here in case others had thoughts on implementation or how to better capture this statistic.
