I've added a new artist, but it can't be found through the webservice


I’ve added this artist (Benjamin Faugloire) to the db: http://musicbrainz.org/artist/9dbc578d-a051-416c-964b-f761d72978cc

Now the problem is I can’t query it through the webservice for instance with this url:

all I get is:

Not Found For usage, please see: http://musicbrainz.org/development/mmd

Did I do something wrong when I added this artist?

You are looking at a mirror server. Those are always a bit behind; they usually receive updates once an hour, but further delays can happen. In this case, you see from the main page that it is nine days behind:

Last replication packet received at 2016-11-08 15:00 UTC

That is the timestamp corresponding to replication packet 99847. The following packet had been lost and wasn’t restored before today.

The mirror server should now be able to catch up, so I’m not sure why it doesn’t; it may fetch replication packets only once a day or so, or its administrator may have disabled it altogether.
