Community Project

This page has not been reviewed by our documentation team (more info).

In order to somehow structure our efforts on fixing and completing MusicBrainz data, the community sometimes forms projects around specialized areas. This helps people to coordinate their editing efforts and to find like-minded editors with knowledge in similar areas.

Feel free to contact, or join these groups, or found a new one!


Reports are lists of things that might need fixing. Feel free to work on them!

Musical Terms Translations
This page provides translations of musical terms commonly found in track titles and release titles.
Jazz Project / Soul Project
The Jazz project contains a number of resources for jazz oriented editors (compositions list in their canonical form, list of collections to tidy, information about labels, a "jazzy wiktionary", a quote board and more). The Soul project is still in its infancy, and for now just has a compositions list.
  • The Jazz "project" is mainly dmppandas pet pages. With the exception of Jazz/Compositions, none of these pages were used by anyone else as far as I can tell, and both Jazz/Labels and Jazz/Collections should be migrated to the new Label feature in the database. Similarly, the Soul project doesn't hold any content but Soul/Compositions. Both these "compositions" pages are very valuable. Maybe the compositions projects could be reorganized/regrouped to something like CompositionsProject?
