  1. Taken from the earliest release in the release group
  2. Used when uncertain whether composer or lyricist.
  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 This is populated by LastFMPlus plugin and not by stock Picard.
  4. 4.00 4.01 4.02 4.03 4.04 4.05 4.06 4.07 4.08 4.09 4.10 4.11 4.12 4.13 This is not able to be populated by stock Picard. It may be used and populated by certain plugins.
  5. For Picard>=1.3 this indicates a VA album; for Picard<=1.2 this indicates albums with tracks by different artists (which is incorrect e.g. an original album with a duet with a feat. artist would show as a Compilation). In neither case does this indicate a MusicBrainz Release Group subtype of compilation.
  6. Release-level license relationship type
  7. Recording-level license relationship type
  8. With "Save iTunes compatible grouping and work" (since Picard>=2.1.0)
