Hi Joerg,
I probably need one of these two at the moment: 1) sleep 2) caffine so I
mis-stated what NEW entails. It deals with initial uploads and other
situations(at least new upstream and other cases). I understand the
initial upload needing attention but the subsequent uploads should not
need license checking unless this 'tag' value was changed.
