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?
My recommendation would be simply not to change it. The UTF-8 hyphen is a stillborn child. General discussion about it is at https://community.metabrainz.org/t/correct-hyphen-unicode-hyphen-or-hyphen-minus/19610
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?
