Dev Artist Page Reorganization

Sections

  • Releases
  • Tracks Appear On
  • Unofficial Releases
  • Credits

Sub-Sections

Releases are sorted in the the sub-sections by looking to see if the
release fits into a sub-section, working from the top to the bottom of a
list. Note that the order of the list is not the same as the final order
as displayed on the artist page - for example, the artist page list
start of with albums, whereas we look at whether the release fits into
the videos section first when we are deciding which sub-section to sort
it into.

Master Releases

On the Artist Pages, we extract a format summary for every MR (this is
currently hidden). This format summary is extracted from all the
contained releases. We use this summary to place the entire MR in the
correct subsection.
