Mod portal reverted license of published mod to MIT

Post by Reika » Tue Aug 07, 2018 7:57 pm

This happened some time in the last few days, likely less than 48 hours ago.

Not of all my mods were affected, but most of the big ones, including NauvisDay, EndgameCombat, DirtyMining, FTweaks, Geothermal, and others, were. A tentative guess is that the affected mods are the ones updated in the last few days. A speculation that occurs to me is whether this might have been related to that database failure the mod portal had a few days ago (the one we were emailed about mods 'not saving').

Can I get some sort of information on why this happened? Additionally, you might want to consider sending another email blast if I am not the only one affected.

Thanks, Reika, for catching this. The issue here was that when an admin edited a mod, the custom license would fail to save.
I have compared against a backup and found that Pyanodon's mods were also affected, I have restored their custom licenses.
