Surplus line break[edit]

{{edit request}} This template produces a surplus line break at the top when transcluded, please remove the "comment to force linebreak". --Patrick87 (talk) 18:40, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Can you imagine why this comment was put in the first place? -- Rillke(q?) 20:22, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
There are two things I could think of:
  • When starting a table on the same line with text it fails:{|

|This should be a table |}

Maybe there was a bug in MediaWiki once that made tables even break when transcluded as templates which might have made this hack necessary.
  • When putting multiple license templates below each other (I don't know if this even makes sense in this case) the spacing between the boxes (including the notice in this template) is always the same. Maybe somebody tried to insert <p><br /></p> as a visual clue to separate the two boxes from the preceding boxes.
While the first point is obsolete for sure, the second should be solved differently think (e.g. by joining the two boxes of this template) if necessary at all. --Patrick87 (talk) 21:31, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

PD or not PD?[edit]

This template confuses me. On the one hand, it's called "PD-LosAlamos" and starts with a US-government public domain statement (Template:PD-USGov-DOE). But on the other hand, that statement says that files from national laboratories (like Los Alamos) may not be PD, and then goes on to quote Los Alamos as granting a simple attribution licence–which still looks free to me, but is certainly not public domain! So which is it? -- Perey (talk) 06:30, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

PS Contrast Oak Ridge, which specifies that materials are public domain, but asks for attribution. -- Perey (talk) 06:32, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
