Re: calm: mksetupini doesn't allow non-empty source but empty install files for an obsolete package

I thought the following would fix it:

This should be being caught by this case (source is empty), but it isn't, I guess because it's got a .keep file due to other problems previously discussed.

I think this maybe needs to be packages[p].version_hints[v].get('category', '') ?

              if not packages[p].tars[packages[p].vermap[v]['source']].is_used:
                  logging.error("package '%s' version '%s' source has no non-empty install tarfiles" % (p, v))
                  error = True

But I must have something wrong, because I still get the error after this change.
