Description johnjackson 2009-06-25 16:42:26 UTC
The project.license key in the nbproject/ file does not seem to be read in certain project types, at
least PHP and Python projects, but it does work in Java projects.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create PHP project
2. Open nbproject/ and add in "project.license=apache20"
3. Create new PHP file

Expected result:
New PHP file is created with the apache20 license at the top.

Actual result:
PHP file contains the default license at the top.

It can be made to work by editing the PHP file template and setting the license line to <#include

The exact same steps work with Java projects.

Tested with daily build 200907171401 and can confirm it now uses the license template I added. Thanks! Not sure if this
is significant, but the built-in licenses, such as apache20 and mit, are blank.

I believe this bug still exists for Python projects though, and possibly others. Should another bug be opened for those?
