official style dude.
Upon hearing this news it became clear that the job of style dude has
grown beyond the job of one person, since there are too many style
issues (especially with AR) arising that one person cannot handle them

brainerz on my trip about Europe, I've decided to expand the duties of
the style dude into the Style Council.

The style council will be lead by Alexander Dupuy, who will shortly
introduce the finer details of this new group of people who will chart

please post them there.
Finally, I wanted to give Tarragon Allen a hearty thank you for all of
his hard work. I really appreciate everything Tarragon has done as the
Style Dude and I think MusicBrainz is a better place because of it.
Thank you very very much Tarragon!
