I really appreciate this email thread since I don't often get feedback or
questions from people who are actually using Tellico. So thanks!

My MusicBrainz search tests all seem to still be working. How often do you
get server timeouts? If it's repeatable, I should look to see if Tellico
can be smart about how its queries are submitted.

For Discogs, yes, I do need to implement the "next page" aspect of looking
through more than the first 20 results.

Tellico uses a cddb library from the KDE Frameworks platform. In theory, I
think it should behave similarly as K3b, though the handling of multiple
responses would be different. In terms of using the local cache results, it
should be that every time, so I think I'm basically as confused as you are
as to how to explain that.
