 +We're considering joining this effort in partnership with [[https://​metabrainz.org/​|The MetaBrainz Foundation]] for the mutual benefits it would provide: sharing of Mixxx users' careful metadata with the wider community (with opt-in) and time savings when Mixxx users add new tracks to their databases that already exists in the MetaBrainz databases.
