[ Sorry for the crossposting, but this is something that affects both pkgsr=
and htdocs. ]
Some weeks ago I commited the following to the docbook-xml package:
date: 2006/04/01 14:43:42; author: jmmv; state: Exp; lines: +6 -2
Add appropriate rewriteSystem entries to the catalog so that system-style
queries (URLs) work. This removes several warnings when, e.g., registering
some documents in the scrollkeeper database. Bump PKGREVISION to 4.
As noted by adrianp@, this change breaks the build of htdocs, which uses
docbook-simple. The problem is that both DTDs have the same prefix:
And when these get rewritten, they point to (respectively):
The problem is that docbook-simple is not installed in that directory; it
currently lives under share/xml/docbook-simple.
I see two possible solutions:
Change the docbook-simple package so that it gets installed as
share/xml/docbook/simple/1.1. This way, the rewriteSystem entry works
fine and we mimic the layout given by the URLs. (I have implemented
Refix the docbook-xml package so that the rewriteSystem entry is more
specific. Instead of saying that the prefix is just
http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/, I'd change it to be
http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/<version>. This way it wouldn't
affect other packages.
Or we can do both so that we have the same directory layout as the
URLs and we avoid rewrite collisions.
Any comments? I think I prefer the latter solution.
