Very useful to have it all in one place like this!

One thing occurred to me, though--I am wondering if grouping these by composer would be better than by title. Someone is much more likely to really know Byrd pieces well or even multiple Renaissance composers (not claiming that I do) than to know pieces starting with S well. That way they can easily find pieces they might have comments about clustered visually together. It's true that someone might be an expert on a particular poem or text, but I suspect that in most cases there are note errors or text errors specific to a work rather than pure text errors that are independent of which setting. Just something to mull over...

Thanks, Vaarky! But I have to admit that I didn't totally understand the advantages of having it sorted by composer name. I suppose the person who will check/correct the edition errors will be the editors themselves, so in fact this list was thought more as a means to facilitate the contact with the editors to inform them of the problems found. Anyway, the composer column was added as a test; it can be reverted later if not necessary. —Carlos Email.gif 20:08, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
Now that you mention it, that does seem like the most likely scenario, and the current sort order works fine given that. --Vaarky 07:20, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
Mr. Pedantic suggests "Editions with known score errors" :) Max a.k.a. Choralia 08:16, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
Max, what about "Editions with reported errors", or "Editions with errors reported"? (don't know which sounds better) —Carlos Email.gif 16:22, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
Great for me. Mother tongue admins may decide which form is best. Choralia 18:03, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
