Great news! Google has accepted us for another round of Summer of code!
Month: March 2009
Today’s the day – our wiki is being migrated to MediaWiki. The old “moin” wiki is now read-only (and will remain so, at least for a few months), and is available on oldwiki.musicbrainz.org. The new wiki, once all the data has been migrated across, will be at the usual address.
As soon as the migration is complete, I’ll switch wiki.musicbrainz.org over to point to MediaWiki.
Unfortunately it won’t be possible to also migrate the user accounts from moin to mediawiki, so regrettably this means that once mediawiki us up, you’ll have to re-create your accounts. Sorry about that.
Update: the switch has been made – if you have any questions to ask or problems to report about this, please see the WikiMigration page. Thanks!
Google Summer of Code starts again!
Google has announced that Summer of Code will be happening again. We’re in the process of applying to participate again and I could use your help in coming up with some ideas for Summer of Code. Please take a look at our as of yet blank ideas page and add new ideas of your own.

MusicBrainz Flickr machine tags
Sander van Zoest and Dan Brickley have been prodding me to officially post about Flickr Machine tags — using Flickr machine tags you can now tag your photos on Flickr to refer to specific MusicBrainz entities. This is how to create MusicBrainz machine tags on Flickr:
