I don't think it is a bug.  You can make a file called default.meta in 
your folder with some basic information and all of the resources that 
get published with Group publish will have that meta data associated 
with it.  I'd suggest entering an enhancement request to bugzilla for 
"set default publish info for this directory" button.  In the meantime, 
you can just copy any .meta file to default.meta and edit it to reflect 
the data in your directory.
