Description Christopher Curran 2009-11-23 01:57:54 EST
Description of problem:
Given the existence of the publican.cfg file publican should accept arbitrary and non-latin names, products and versions. The book_info.xml file should allow any value in productnumber, title, edition, subtitle and so on.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a book
2. Put something funky in the edition (for example: 愛) and then configure a numerical version in the publican config file (for example: 1).
3. book breaks (see "results").
Actual results:
Invalid format for version. Value (愛) does not conform to constraint ([^0-9.]) at /usr/bin/publican line 362

Expected results:
These constraints should be removed if there is a value present in the configuration file.

The book should build and output an RPM with version 1 and a product with edition 愛.

Additional info:
Edition Beta/Alpha and prerelease should work. Product numbers and editions should support latin characters, non latin characters and punctuation.

tested building and packaging with the following settings.

$ grep edition en-US/Book_Info.xml publican.cfg 
en-US/Book_Info.xml:    <edition>愛</edition>
publican.cfg:edition: 1.2

Built and packaged correctly with o error messages. Please supply a link to your source so we can check it for oddities.

This works in 1.2. It just affected 1.1. Fixed.
