On Community Cleanup / Debussy topic some feedback was requested about https://musicbrainz.org/edit/47185652 . I’m starting another topic about this because in general this isn’t just about Debussy (and people not interested about the composer might skip the posts on that topic).
I believe MB series entity wasn’t really planned for this kind of usage. People subscribing artist aren’t able to see this type of edits because it’s not related to the artist. At the moment series entity doesn’t have similar relationship types as works so series can’t have a composer, arranger, lyricist or any necessary relationship types. Other websites and databases consider our work data being stored only on work entity.
I would discourage doing similar edits until there’s been more discussion about it. Even though we have something called “series” might not mean that it makes sense to store this type of data. Even UI doesn’t seem to be suitable for this task at the moment. I mean how many pages you need to scroll to see all the titles of the series if there’s tens of parts?
