Item13649: BuildContrib not properly copying copyright information releasing an extension

Priority: Urgent
Current State: Closed
Released In: 2.0.2
Target Release: patch
Applies To: Extension

When building an extension to be uploaded to Foswiki.org BuildContrib does not properly copy the copyright notions to the PackageForm. While this is not an urgent issue for the functionality of BuildContrib nor the plugin being released, it is indeed an urgent task as copyright information must always stay intact as it cannot be rewritten to an arbitrary different string.

For example, this

|  Copyright ©: | 2009-2015, Michael Daum http://michaeldaumconsulting.com |

is converted to

% META:FIELD{name="Copyright" title="Copyright" value="Foswiki Contributors, All Rights Reserved"}%

-- MichaelDaum - 31 Aug 2015

The regex that picks up the Copyright and Author entries doesn't match other variations. For ex Copyright: Copyright (C) and Copyright © also Author, Authors and Author(s). Fixed these, but there may be other variations.

... and if no match was found, never insert another copyright.

-- MichaelDaum - 03 Sep 2015

This is fixed and released:
 $ git tag --contains 994f94b51310
