I’m pleased to announce that MusicIP has just open sourced a small extension to the MusicBrainz server!
MusicIP contracted me to write a set of SQL scripts that would take their mirror of the MB database and create an extra table that stores the first release date for each track. As you may know we have this for albums, but we haven’t had (or needed) this for the track level.
If you’d like to check out this extension, you can find it here. Take a look at the README file to see how this should be used.
Please note that this code is checked into the RELEASE_20060712 branch — once we’re finished with dev work on this branch we will merge it back into the trunk.
Big thanks to Wendell Hicken and Matthew Dunn of MusicIP!
