What’s the policy for reissues that split an original release into two separate releases?

For example: Anthony Braxton’s Willisau (Quartet) 1991 - Studio/Live (https://musicbrainz.org/release/ce1f625a-5d21-488a-950e-22e92d9d18d9). The first two discs (the studio part) has recently been reissued by Hat Hut as a stand alone release. Should this go in the same release group, or should there be a new one?


I would put them in the same release group.


I just remembered, does the fact that the release group is categorized as ‘live’ change that? (discs 3 and 4 of the original set are live sets)


It shouldn’t, at least not in my eyes. Granted, I wouldn’t have set the release group as “live” since its contents are split 50/50 studio and live (rather than entirely or mostly live, as is the case with traditional live albums).
