    End of FreeDB?

    http://www.freedb.org

    Is freeDB shutting down? Their website has two seemingly conflicting messages on it.

    "Urgent notice - freedb.org and its services will be shut down on March 31st of 2020."

    "Continuation of the free database guaranteed

    With the acquisition of the www.freedb.org domain MAGIX also takes on all duties regarding the worldwide freedb community:

    the entire freedb service has been running since the middle of September on the MAGIX servers (including the FTP download function of the open source database and archive)
    this service will remain license-free and will be available for unrestricted use by any commercial or non-commercial user or developer
    all updates to the database will also continue to be regularly and freely available
    the licence for the data and the corresponding server or service software will remain under GPL
    Furthermore, MAGIX runs the mirror server and hosts the website as well as the new forum. This secures a basis for theprosperity of freedb and its main aim: the data collected by the users for the users will be kept freely available in thefuture - guaranteed. MAGIX will add its know-how to help with the continued development of the service according to the GPL.Every developer from the present community is invited to continue to actively contribute to the successful continuity of freedb."

    It does not. R17 uses our own freedb server.
