Hi,

I recently updated Jaikoz and noticed that behaviour regarding compilation albumartist info loaded from Discogs changed. On Discogs these compilation albums are assigned to artist 'Various'.

Old behaviour of Jaikoz: albumartist is 'Various', new behaviour: 'Various Artists'.

Can someone please point me to the description of this change? Searching the forums did not help me.

Thanks!
Adriaan

The primary source for Jaikoz is MusicBrainz, this uses Various Artists so it was decided to use the convert Discogs matches to use Various Artists as well for consistency.

There may not be an issue ticket for this issue as I deemed it a minor change that I fixed as part of the changes to use the Albunack server for matching, it is causing you a problem ?

thanks Paul (Administrator)

Thanks for the explanation, I believe it is a good move. Might have been even better to have a configuration option. Then again, it would complicate matters

It is only causing a minor problem: I have to update all compilation album metadata. As long as it is consistent, it's fine for me.
