MusicBrainz Server update, 2019-11-11

This release contains a new “Voting suggestions” page with some useful, predefined edit searches that ought to help editors find and review edits that need more attention.

We also have some minor improvements and display fixes, detailed below. The conversion of our template code to React slowly continues.

Thanks to cyna, chaban, and all others who tested or contributed to this release!
