0008660: Lye in wood barrels can't be used for making soap
I have an ashery, a soap workshop, and a stockpile that only accepts lye (and barrels), all next to each other. The stockpile contains barrels, which each contain a bucket of lye. The soap makers refuse to use the lye in the barrels in the stockpile, but they can use the lye in the asheries (i.e. while it's still in the workshop and hasn't been put in a barrel yet).

If I dump and reclaim the buckets and move them to a barrel-less stockpile, the dwarves start using them.

It's similar to the old bug 0004969, though in that bug discussion it's implied that lye in wood barrels is useable, and it's not useable for me.

The 04/28/2015 indicates this should be fixed in the next version.

It sounds like it, although it wasn't explicitly listed in the 0.42.01 changelog. I'll mark this as fixed, but let me or another manager know on the forums if this is still an issue.
