Description of problem:

The Fedora Musician's Guide for F16 contains the following in the Author_Group.xml, no other entries exist:

   <authorgroup>
       <corpauthor>
           Fedora Project Contributors
       </corpauthor>
   </authorgroup>

For reasons unknown this causes all kinds of consternation for FOP when building the PDF from publican, despite this exact tag set building fine in other books. I have attached the log for your amusement.

In the interim I have commented out the xi:include for the Author_Group.xml and the PDF build now works. If you wanted to reproduce I would:

1. git clone git://git.fedorahosted.org/docs/musicians-guide.git
2. Remove the comment markers around the xi:include of Author_Group.xml in Book_Info.xml
3. Attempt to run:

publican build --embedtoc --publish --formats epub,html,html-single,pdf --langs en-US


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

publican-2.8-1.fc16.noarch
publican-fedora-2.0-3.fc15.noarch
fop-1.0-17.fc16.noarch
Comment 1 Jeff Fearn 2011-11-28 20:25:56 EST
Added handling for corpauthor in custom table layout.

Added to branches/publican-2x.

This may be the last fix for FOP ever!

Committed revision 1964.

Verified PDF local build (publican build) correctly with only the authorgroup element provided in c#1 in the Author_Group.xml file for the book.

Verified on:

OS: Fedora 16
Publican: 3.0
Release designation: publican-3.0-0.fc16.t166.src.rpm
