I don't know the dev-status right now, but I'd say this is not a bug it's a feature. ;) explanation follows later on.

I bet everything is ok. 

To verify everything is ok with your metadata go to
or if you like plain XML

As you will probably see your metadata is 100% complete.

So why doesn’t status.xsl show it? Well IIRC at the time this xslt was written this was the only available metadata through the status.xml file.

As a coincidence on the icecast-dev mailing list there is a discussion underway about all xslt's provided by the server. If you want to have this metadata instantly on your server read my last post to the list through the xiph.org mailing list archive. There you'll find some basic advice how to edit your status.xsl .

If you have any problems with that report them to this list or if they are very specific to your server PM me.
