no - not a typo. The tool can process both.
It's just my naming, because I use it for fastq.
I'll change the help tag.

Hi Alexander,

If this wasn't a collection, I would expect  format_source to work
(possibly also using metadata_source="fastq_input1"), so perhaps
this is a bug - John?


P.S. Your help caption and output label both say FASTQ, but the
input also allows FASTA input. Typo?
