Question Collection-type series error

I'm trying to use Sigil's metadata editor to set up a series (issues of a magazine). I found that choosing the "collection type: series" property of "belongs-to-collection" results in something like the following in content.opf:

Code:
<meta property="belongs-to-collection" id="magazine-issue">Collection name</meta>
<meta refines="#magazine-issue" property="collection-type-series">series</meta>
Which EPUBCheck marks as an error. After some research and testing, what seems to be correct is:

Code:
<meta property="belongs-to-collection" id="magazine-issue">Collection name</meta>
<meta refines="#magazine-issue" property="collection-type">series</meta>

Am I missing something, or is this an error in the Sigil implementation?

Yes a definite error. There are similar bugs with other type refinements. I will fix that before the next release.

Thanks for catching and reporting that bug.

As a work-around, you can fix it by manually editing the opf or by using custom properties in place of the broken one in the metadata editor.

Update:

Fix just pushed to master. It will appear in the next release which should happen sometime over the holidays.

Thanks. I manually edited the opf ; couldn't get custom properties right, and this is just as easy, since it's a one time thing.
