Description Stephen Gordon 2012-08-08 15:21:20 EDT
Description of problem:

When publican encounters a parsing error in the Revision_History.xml file, which is now parsed before the rest of the XML, the error doesn't specify what or where the problem is.

Mismatched firstname and/or surname tags caused the error in my case, but the only reason I realised this was because the only file I had changed was Revision_History.xml and it failed an xmllint when I ran it directly.

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

publican-3.0-0.fc17.t216.noarch

Additional Information:

$ rhpkg publican build --langs=en-US --formats=html

mismatched tag at line 17, column 6, byte 565 at /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/XML/Parser.pm line 187
