comment SharePoint 2010 for custom content type not working for subsite
Are you creating a subsite from a saved web/site template? If so, are those content types defined/saved within a list in the template?

comment Feature Upgrading - Adding an existing content type to a list definition
Yes, I've been going over both Chris O'Brien's articles and Jeremy Thake's video - but both didn't cover adding CT to list as an upgrade activity. Anyhow, I've been ensuring I use Upgrade-SPSolution cmdlet instead of retract+deploy.

comment Feature to automatically apply Master Page
How do you set it in a custom site definition? Would it be in the Onet.xml - under <Configuration> element. I see there is a MasterUrl attribute, but removing that attrib doesn't inherit the parent's masterpage.

comment Deploying WSP from saved as template - editing binary serialized web part in Visual Studio
Chris, don't think it's a bug, but seems to be by design. Webparts that have embedded XML, saving the site as WSP seems to serialize that webpart. Web parts would be stored in the manifest (elements.xml) in CDATA blocks, but for webparts that themselves have additional XML/XSL (in CDATA blocks), because CDATA blocks can't be nested, the whole webpart then is stored as binary serialized data. A post by Nancy Brown link got me thinking about it this way.

comment When deploying a site from custom site template, one lookup column in doclib has empty values for Office 2010 (docx, xlsx, pptx) files
It seems that this is related to SharePoint doing document property promotion and demotion - see [link]msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa543341.aspx - and the document parser. The Unit (lookup) column seems to be inconsistent somewhere as I had edited the manifest. Does anyone know if the <Property Name="metainfo" ... /> element is required?
