Processing of box sets

I’ve had quite a few messages like the following, all relating to box sets:

Box sets are difficult because trying to find a match between so many songs.

i.e matching 10 songs against 10 song album you have a 10 x10 = 100 matrix. Whereas matching 100 songs against a 10 album (of 10 songs) boxset you have 100 x 100 = 10, 000 matrix !

We do special processing for boxsets but they are still more difficult than standard albums, and sometimes the processing hits the limit and we have to cancel.

More work to be done on matching boxsets better.
