MusicBrainz Server update, 2021-02-01

This slightly delayed release brings with it more bugfixes, improvements, and React-converted templates than usual. A new data report created by loujin lists disc IDs that are attached to media but not applied to them. Also, the Italian localization of the website – that was available in beta only and is maintained by salorock – reached 100% and is now available for the main website, evviva!

A new release of MusicBrainz Docker is also available that matches this update of MusicBrainz Server. See the release notes for update instructions.
