Description eric@christensenplace.us 2011-10-24 22:44:37 EDT
Description of problem: Empty <productversion> causes install_book to fail silently.  Adding <productversion>, or "version:" in publican.cfg, fixes the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.8-1.fc16

Additional Information: Also seen in fc15 version as well.

This error should be caught much sooner. Improved constraint validation.

stand up publican website, get a book, remove product version from bookinfo file, build book, then install the book on the website. verify the book does not install and you get an error std out.

Empty <productversion> no longer silent. Received error message for empty <productversion>:

Invalid format for version. Value (EMPTY) does not conform to constraint (^[0-9]) at /usr/bin/publican line 634

Setting to VERIFIED.
