I had occasion to re-read How to Add a Release. It’s really good information — it answered my immediate question — but I realised that it is missing the instructions how I add all of my entries for CDs.
What’s the process for improving documentation these days? Should I just be bold, and edit https://wiki.musicbrainz.org/How_to_Add_a_Release on the wiki? Who do I notify for review?
In case you are interested, this is what I think is missing:
I always enter CDs by having Picard generate a Disc ID, then try to look it up in MusicBrainz. Sometimes MB has the Disc ID; usually, it doesn’t. So, I click the link for Add a Release, and then follow the four dialogues of Adding a Release. I like this because MusicBrainz knows all the track durations thanks to the Disc ID. Also, I get the Disc ID registered in MusicBrainz. Later, when I rip the CD, my ripper can retrieve accurate Release and Track titles via a Disc ID lookup.
There are instructions on How to Add Disc IDs. They mention in passing the Add a Release link. However, I don’t think that will inform a user looking for ways to add a release.
