I wonder if I’ve set Packaging type correctly. I used Cardboard/Paper Sleeve on all mainly cardboard covers. I thought that Gatefold Covers are more valuable covers. But if it’s only “A cardboard sleeve that folds in halves, thirds, etc.” it will apply even on FKA twigs - MAGDALENE. It’s the cheapest possible way of packaging.
But I’m not certain. There are still more high-quality Gatefolds even with CDs.
Gatefold looks correct.
Only use when it’s a single, non-foldout sleeve (like what is used for a typical vinyl LP).
The pictures do help as a memory jog https://musicbrainz.org/doc/Release/Packaging
Not really about the “quality” of packaging, more about the shape.
Thought I know what a Gatefold Cover would be. I think, I have to rework some of my edits… (Encore Series Covers are Gatefolds too, I suppose)
To me the key is in the word - Gate+Fold. Two parts with a fold in the middle. Swings like a farm gate.
If it can stand up on it’s own, then it is a gatefold.
I have plenty of albums - vinyl and CD - where there is only one disk, but the package is still a gatefold. The Eilish is a good reference as that is a three part gatefold. Cheap cardboard, but more than just a sleeve.
That packaging help page link is available from the Release page when you are editing. Makes it easy to make a quick sanity check on the package type.
And yes, the Encore Series are also Gatefolds. It even says so in the annotation: https://musicbrainz.org/series/e3975deb-4f3f-4de1-b650-7e87318d892a
Though they are made of cardboard also and farm gates usually do not fold - I’ve got the meaning of the word Gatefold.
I’ve read it, but thought that’s marketing. No, in this case, to read the Guideline definition would have helped. But it will be no big effort to correct all of these.
