Description Joshua Wulf 2012-07-11 00:37:13 EDT
At the moment Publican 3's Builder.pm hardcodes the schema to be used for validation for Docbook 5:


 if ( $dtdver =~ m/^5/ ) {
        $dtd_type = qq|-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML $dtdver//EN|;
        $dtd_path = qq|http://docbook.org/xml/$dtdver/rng/docbook.rng|;


I have a customization layer that Norm wrote for me that I'd like to be able to use (https://gist.github.com/2768701).

Can we make it possible to override the default validation schema from the xml?
Comment 1 Jeff Fearn 2013-01-07 20:53:10 EST
This fix has been committed to the devel branch for inclusion in Publican 3.1.

Added dtd_type and dtd_uri parameters, which can be set in brands, to override the strings Publican generates.
Comment 2 Stephen Gordon 2013-01-08 15:20:38 EST
Hi Jeff, does this belong in defaults.cfg, overrides.cfg or publican.cfg in the brand (or some combination of these)?
Comment 3 Stephen Gordon 2013-01-08 15:34:16 EST
Thinking about it more I think as a brand setting the answer must be publican.cfg in the brand but I will test to be sure.
Comment 4 Jeff Fearn 2013-01-08 17:59:50 EST
In a brand publican.cfg affects packaging the brand itself. defaults.cfg & overrides.cfg affect books using that brand.

In this case you want the brand to control what happens in the books, so either defaults.cfg or overrides.cfg will do.

Verify version:publican-3.1.0-0.el6eng.noarch -> PASS


Verify steps:
1. $Publican create_brand --name=test --lang=en-US
2. Add dtd_type and dtd_uri parameters in defaults.cfg of brand, set dtd_uri to https://gist.github.com/2768701 and dtd_type to -//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML 5.0//EN
3. Build the brand and install it to /usr/share/publican/Common_Content/
4. Create a book and set brand: test in publican.cfg.
5. Build the book, then check tmp/en-US/*.xml

Actual results:
Validation schema for Docbook 5 have been changed to what we set.
