Trying to clean up my personal music collection I've come across an issue, and I don't necessarily follow Musicbrainz style guidelines to the letter, however I'm having an issue regarding composers and curious how other people tend to handle it.
Ideally I want a single composer entry for each person, usually using whatever name they typically go by, perhaps preferably their real name. The problem comes when a composer may be credited differently, sometimes changing how they are credited midway through their careers.
For example, how would you handle variations on a name, like "Peter" vs "Pete" especially if both versions are used at some point?
I think I'm just looking for other people's input so it might help me come to a decision myself.
