Hi!
I need some clarification on how some tags are compiled by Jaikoz taking the Musicbrainz release:

Specifically the tags "Performer", "Performer Name", "Sort Performer Name", "Instrument"

In these 3 releases of Musicbrainz, the information is set differently (in terms of "recording" or "release" level ...). How does Jaikoz interpret them?
Why, in Release 1, "Performer Name" and "Sort Performer Name" are compiled only with singer's names? And "Instrument"? Why Jaikoz only fill the fields in one release?

Release 1

We mostly use recording credits since the release credits cannot usually be accurately applied to all tracks on the release, the only performers listed on these tracks at recording level are the vocal credits.

Ok for release 1 (the battle), but not for the second (the great divide) and the third (the showdown).
In "the great divide" all the members of the group are on the "recording" level and in "the showdown" only the singers. But for both Jaikoz only compiles the "Performer" tag.
In general it is not a problem. I just have to understand how the program works because I have several thousand albums to compile and I would like to set everything correctly first.

Okay so the other thing is that Jaikoz doesn't directly use MusicBrain/Discogs databases, instead we keep an optimized merged copy called Albunack that we update monthly.

The recording level musician credits for the second and third releases were only just added to MusicBrainz, and therefore are not yet in the Albunack database.

ok, now is clear.
Is it possible to see on Albunack when the last update was made (so to be sure to use Jaikoz to compile album tags only when Albunack is updated to the latest version)?

Not at the moment but that has been requested, Albunack should be updated next week.

It would be useful to see it.
Simple solution: could you add a topic / post on the forum (or blog) to be updated each time the update is performed with the alignment date?
