Support DocBook 5 as input format
Last modified: 2013-12-18 21:46:46 EST
Can we please support DocBook 5 as an input format alongside DocBook 4? This will make it much easier and cheaper to work with other open source documentation projects that have already made the move to DocBook 5.
HSS-QE has reviewed and declined this request. QE for this bug will be handled by IED.
This is in place in devel branch and can be tested.
Suggestions on alternative names for --dtdver accepted.

Seems to work, not sure if my testing was sufficient:
rpm -q publican
publican create --lang en-US --name "Test_Book"
cd Test_Book; vi publican.cfg
Added dtdver: "5.0"
Then I went to
I added two new tags to the book, personblurb and acknowledgments, and they were built with no problems even though their content was suppressed by Publican/brand.
I also added markup snippet described in:
In DocBook V5.0, this can be written as the following:
1 <section xml:id="dir">
2 <title>DIR command</title>
6 <section xml:id="ls">
8 <para>This command is a synonym for
<command linkend="dir">DIR</command> command.
Everything worked as expected so I guess the support is there. Moving to Verified
