Tango.info tanda id
would be nice if tango.info could be used to create tanda links and would allow resolution
Constituting elements could be
- tracks (actual audio, as in the cjjsets), then a tanda is a set of tracks
- performances, a tanda
- or tracks and performances
An ID could consist of
- IDs for the constituent parts concatenated
- track IDs, TINTs, already exist
- have a new own ID, likely much shorter, since a lot of combinations likely never are used
A TINP has 14 digit, written as base 62 it could be encoded into 8 chars. http://www.google.com/search?q=62^8
A TINP-14 has 14 chars. A TINT as minimum 18 char, for 2-digit track numbers, frequently seen on CDs will has 19 char. For albums with more than 9 parts and more than 99 tracks on each part there can also be 21 char TINTs, example structure: 12345678901234-10-100. Currently in tango.info there are only TINT with 20 char, either ending like -10-10 or -1-100.
An ID made of TINTs for a tanda made of 4 tracks, would then have as maximum 4 * 20 = 80 char for the TINTs and 3 for the separators, i.e. 83 chars. For 5 tracks it would be 104.
The standard tango.info base url with https, https://tango.info/ has 19 chars.
The URL would have a length of 102 chars for 4 tracks and of 123 chars for 5 tracks.
Concatenated with / as for other URLs in tango.info (currently not resolving to a tanda)
