'composer' field for collections

Folks, have a look at

http://imslp.org/wiki/Cantiones_Triginta_Selectissim%C3%A6_(Stephani,_Clemens)

Clemens Stephani is the editor of this collection; it doesn't contain any work written by him. I thus think that page should be moved to, say,

Cantiones Triginta Selectissimæ (ed. Stephani, Clemens)

Irrespective of that, in the 'General Information' field, Stephani's name is used for the 'composer' field, which is completely wrong. How should be this handled correctly?

Not how it works. If Stefani was the one who assembled the collection it goes under his personal category as a collection. This does not mean he composed any music therein. The composer field here means only that he is the author of the collection.

OK, but I still think that the field name 'composer' is still misleading in this case...

Next question: This collection contains, say, a work from Cosmas Alder, not uploaded to IMSLP as a separate score. What must be done so that it gets linked to this composer's page, i.e.,

http://imslp.org/wiki/Category:Alder,_Cosmas ?

Is this possible at all?

I've updated the page by using the ColCat template so that every contributor to the collection who has a composer category now has the Cantiones Triginta Selectissimæ collection linked on their own category page beneath the collections tab. Once composer categories for those whose links appear in red (Eckel, Kugelman, etc.) are created this collection will also appear on their category pages.

Excellent, thanks! Now I know how it works :-)
