Failed build email is misleading over control file lists section

Bug #139492 reported by David Morris on 2007-09-13
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

Since a fullstop is placed at the end of the line "22:37:36 WARNING opensg_1.8.0alpha1~ppa4_amd64.deb control file lists section as universe/misc. but changes file has universe/misc." the user can easily be lead to believe (as I was) that a full stop is required on the line in the control file

it's not in an email template... you'll find the actual extra full-stop in lib/lp/archiveuploader/ in BaseBinaryUploadFile.verifyProperty()

Thanks for fixing it! (make sure you run the nascentuploadfile.txt test too).
