Description Ryan Lerch 2008-10-15 19:31:28 EDT
Description of problem:
when building the web-srpm (i tested with make web-brew-scratch-en-US) and no Revision History is present in the book / article, publican's error reporting is not very useful:

START: web-srpm-en-US: Thu Oct 16 07:16:41 EST 2008
 I/O error : Is a directory
 tmp/en-US/xml/:1: parser error : Document is empty
 ^
 tmp/en-US/xml/:1: parser error : Start tag expected, '<' not found
 ^
 I/O error : Is a directory
 unable to parse tmp/en-US/xml/
 make: *** [web-srpm-en-US] Error 6
Comment 1 Jeff Fearn 2008-10-15 22:47:18 EDT
Added check for valid revision history file when building rpms.

Added error message:

*ERROR: No revhistory found*
You need a correctly formatted Revision History to build RPMS
make: *** [web-srpm-en-US] Error 5
