Description Ruediger Landmann 2012-08-30 19:59:51 EDT
Description of problem:
The "publican create" action generates an entities file for new books with some commonly useful entities pre-loaded into it. 

However, extra entities might be useful to a brand -- for example, a project might want to specify an entity that contains a URL to their bug tracker. Brands can already call new entities in their Common Content files, but without a corresponding entity in the .ent files of newly created books, these books will not build.

Brands might also want to provide defaults or overrides for the standard Publican-supplied entities; in particular, for the &HOLDER; entity, which is typically the same right across a project.

Long stated policy is that we will not expand entity support in any way and we will kill it off if we get half a chance ... DocBook5 is at least a 45% chance.
