Summary0008444: [patch] More template info needed
DescriptionSince templates may be distributed under different licenses ([L]GPL, CC etc.), it would help to add the same copyrights and licensing info to the templates dialog and the XML files as in the About Plugins dialog.

I agree that as defender of the right license use we should provide such a field. As i saw it's in the roadmap for 150, here is a patch that tries to add it. TODO : check for a trouble in the resize capacities of the windows when retracting and may be add strings to po but i don't know how.

Right field added to save as template dialog and dialog in the info area of new from template. Would it be usefull to provide a list of commont licenses ? If yes, which ?

since creating a template is for most people not an everyday task and there may be lot of different licenses to propose (CC is translated to many countries...) i think that a default for the templates seems to me a bit overkill.

but we could have a license field for the documents, and offer there a license field where the user could set the license for each specific document.

the value the person will set in the preferences will be used for each future document and template.

the patch already provide a new input field for that. My question was more on replacing an input field by a dropdown list with common licences (personnaly i think this will be too much).
But getting info from preferences or document settings might be nice. I'll look how to do it. I also need it for collect4output report.
