I have looked into this a bit more and found that I was wrong. ;(
Reading comments on the Bugtracker page I found the following:
When processing a segment with a Down,-Unpublished- entry with AllowUnpub=0, an
error message is logged "Invalid keyword -- "FILES"" . This error message needs
to be corrected to indicate the true problem: ie: -Unpublished- is only allowed
with Pvt or Hold systems, per FTS-5000.002.
Reading documents is always good.
I did my first tests with makenl 3.2.9 from the Debian Wheezy distribution.
To get a proper nodelist I had to set the option Unpublished=1.
Under those conditions the above Error is a correct Nodelist entry.
And I wondered, why it was flagged as an error.
It appears the logic for processing with AllowUnpub=0 in makenl 3.2.9 is not
in compliance with FTS-500.002 or even worse.
You are/were running 3.2.15, so I went vor recent sources on Fourceforge,
where at the momnent the current version is 3.2.17.
By working with that version I was able to reconstruct the current nodelist
as it is with the following use of AllowUnpub
Zone1 segment - AllowUnpub=0
Zone2 segment - AllowUnpub=1
Zonex segment - not relevant
Composite file - AllowUnpub=1
As noted above AllowUnpub=0 will only allow -Unpublished- together with
Pvt or Hold. The above error is a combination of -Unpublished- Down, which
is not permitted by FTS-500-002.
With respect to the weird second error line "Invalid keyword -- "FILES"
I can only say, that as far as I can read/follow the code, that line is
correct. I agree with the bugreport, that a more relevant text would be
As a solution to to the error in the nodelist, either the compliance with
FTS-5000.002 can be lifted as is done for the Composite file, or RC17/NC153
bring the line in compliance, by setting the node on Hold.
As a last I would like to commend Andrew Leary for the state of the
