Hi there,

Just reporting that the Twenty Seventeen theme v2.2 checks whether the entry footer is empty in order to avoid a huge blank space.


                // We don't want to output .entry-footer if it will be empty, so make sure its not.
                if ( ( ( twentyseventeen_categorized_blog() && $categories_list ) || $tags_list ) || get_edit_post_link() ) {


However, this check fails for cases of posts of a custom post type with no taxonomy terms associated and a big empty space gets inserted at the bottom of the singular page.

$categories_list is not empty as the string value Uncategorized is assigned by get_the_category_list() (/wp-includes/category-template.php)

I am cautious about changing this now and the impact so let's get some feedback and thoughts by adding a keyword for that.
