There's an earlier thread, this message somehow detached from threading,
at least for me.

There are a couple of things that this particular licensing broker wants
that are not in the general /admin/stats XML document, which is used for
XSLT files in the web directory.
IMHO it would already now be possible to gather the data, it's just that
the licensing broker doesn't bother to figure it out and demands an
easily digestible one URL solution. For other reasons we might humor
this, but unless someone wants to throw some money at it, it will happen
in the regular development cycle at free time pace.

If it's just xslt files you can wrap them in the config by a
It's a bit counter intuitive to define a mount for a XSLT, but that's
how icecast mechanics work.

We'll be working on those things, but right now getting 2.4.1 out the
door with some important bug fixes is priority 1. I will be replying to
the original thread once the release has happened.
