Hi all,

I posted this message before on icecast-dev, but I guess it's more 
appropiate here.

First of all thanks again for icecast2. It keeps surprising me how easy and 
stable it is to use!

I'm working with icecast2 from SVN now (revision 10692) and it's mount point 
features. I've created the top mount point '/play.ogg' so we have only one main 
mount point for users to tune into.

Now this /play.ogg has the fallback /live.ogg and /live.ogg has the fallback 
/playlist.ogg. In the config file I added metadata for the /play.ogg mount 
point that looks like this:

     <stream-name>Beathead Broadcasts</stream-name>
     <stream-description>Homebrew Broadcasts for Hip 

Unfortunately, when I look at the /play.ogg metadata in status.xsl, it is al 

Do I use the wrong metadata tags in the config or is this normal behaviour for 
a non-connected mount which only serves as main entry mount point?

Thanks for reading and any reaction that may follow.
