FAST files without SENSOR not working

Reported by: warmerdam Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.7.0
Component: GDAL_Raster Version: svn-trunk
Severity: normal Keywords: FAST
Cc: Even Rouault


I have a RevB fast format file from a client with no SENSOR keyword. In trunk this file is not supported, and I get the error message "Cannot get SENSOR NAME" which appears to be to error checking logic introduced by EvenR in r16396. Similar checking was added for ACQUISITION_DATE and SATELLITE_NAME.

I am seeking permission to attach the file. I plan to revert the introduced requirement for these keywords, but I am interested in knowing whether there was a reason this requirement was introduced or if it was just an unintentional byproduct of NULL checking.

Requirement for these three values has been removed in trunk (r18414).

Leaving open pending introduction of a regression test, and possible input by Even.
