Only package-info.xml or also modifications.xml? Because they both have these infos like name, id, version...

Furthermore, there is an XML element-tag called <license></license> that is applicable to package-info.xml :)
What? In SMF 2.0?

I honestly have no idea. emanuele uses it in his modifications. It may be for future implementation, and for reading purposes.

probably in SVN, then. Because I've never heard of such a tag.

It's not used in SMF 2 yet. Further more, it doesn't matter if it is or not. :) You can add whatever tag you want, SMF will only read the tags it needs.

we definitely have plans for it in future source.

see http://test.turtleshellprod.com/index.php?action=credits#copyrights for a preview of what we have played around with so far.  Specifically, look at the end of the list for the optimus brave entry...

yes, what we have done so far does allow that, if the package uses the tag
(as I said, see the Optimus Brave mod at the bottom of the list)

New tags: website, copyright and license (all optional of course)
The website tag is used around the name of the mod,
If the copyright tag is not defined, a string "by <name of the modder>" is used -- filled from the package info.
if the license tag is defined, a link to the license is included after the author/copyright

note: we're still working on the final format of this stuff...   I added the code update to my test site specifically because it's a good way to test it with 160 mods installed.


edit2- I'll make a mod package in a bit which does this change so people can see the actual effect and experiment with their own mods.

Does it do it automatically, ie. no need for the mod to manually do it??

well, right now (in 2.0) it would be a mod...
I believe that it is planned to add for 2.1.

of course, to take full advantage of it, the mod packages will have to add the correct tags as well.
