Currently, BookBrainz has no style guidelines, and assumes that editors are familiar with the MusicBrainz style guidelines and apply them with a few necessary modifications when editing. It would be nice to eventually have our own style guidelines, and we'd like to start with a guideline for names of things (aliases).
This guideline should be based on the MusicBrainz Titles and Artist guidelines (http://musicbrainz.org/doc/Style/Titles) and (http://musicbrainz.org/doc/Style/Artist), and only needs to cover English language artists and titles (although language-specific guidelines should be kept to a minimum). In addition to the MB guidelines, it'll be necessary to get feedback as you go along from the BookBrainz developers and particular editors (CatQuest and reosarevok on IRC may be helpful).
Please refer to the documentation guideline (http://bb-user-guide.readthedocs.org/en/latest/contribute/) for writing clear and effective style guidelines.
