Bug Information
Severity: Normal
Broken in: 0.27_02
Fixed in: (no value)

Subject: Erroneously rejecting 'restrictive' license
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 336b
The attached patch against CVS (v0.27_02) corrects a mistake in do_create_metafile() where the license value of undef is incorrectly equated with absense. For the case of "restrictive => undef" this meant that the code emitted "Unknown license type 'restrictive". Also, I fixed the missing trailing single-quote in the error message.

Thanks Chris, I'll apply this when I get home tonight. -Ken
