Description Raphaël Hertzog 2014-09-18 07:09:23 UTC
I'm trying to build an updated Debian package but the test suite fails while trying to build the user manual (see log below). Yet I have all the packages at versions higher than those that you request in Build.PL. XML::LibXSLT is linked against libxslt1.1 in version 1.1.28 and libxml2 in version 2.9.1 (see list of packages at the end).

Reading the XSLT 1 spec, I wonder whether we should use xsl:fallback instead of an explicit test. The possibility to use xsl:when combined with function-available is only mentionned in the fallback section:

Comment 1 Jeff Fearn 🐞 2014-09-19 00:17:12 UTC
The problem here is that the FOP XSL for common-db5 just redirects to upstream fo/docbook.xsl and doesn't change anything.

publican/datadir/Common_Content/common-db5/xsl/pdf.xsl probably needs to have something like:

<xsl:param name="tablecolumns.extension" select="0"/>
<xsl:param name="fop.extensions" select="0"/>
<xsl:param name="fop1.extensions" select="1"/>
<xsl:param name="linenumbering.extension" select="0"/>

added after the import line.

I can probably test this Monday.

Comment 2 Raphaël Hertzog 2014-09-19 09:09:18 UTC
I tried with this patch and it doesn't help.

I still get the same error message.

Comment 3 Jeff Fearn 🐞 2014-09-22 23:56:41 UTC
Had to do two main things.

1: Add options to docbook5 pdf.xsl.
2: Fix auto docs feature to output stricter XML.

PUG now generates a valid, if ugly, PDF using FOP.
