Script for editing artist and updating exceptionally long list of artist credits


#1

For example: https://musicbrainz.org/artist/0febdcf7-4e1f-4661-9493-b40427de2c13/edit

If the hyphen-minus was changed to a UTF-8 hyphen and all appropriate artist credits were changed, the result would be a postgres error about running out of shared memory.

Is there a script to help get around this?


#2

My recommendation would be simply not to change it. The UTF-8 hyphen is a stillborn child. General discussion about it is at Correct hyphen: Unicode HYPHEN or HYPHEN-MINUS

OK, thanks for that. Take a step back from that and imagine some other edit where it’s about making a change that also impacts too many ACs for postgres to handle all at once… Can it be done via a script?
