Description Pete Travis 2015-03-06 06:37:44 UTC
Created attachment 998686 [details]
sample xml with exactly one id="Installation-Guide-Preface" attribute

Description of problem:
Tools relying on libxml2 are complaining about invalid duplicate id attributes.  I discovered it with publican, and verified with xmllint.  There's a sample xml file attached, derived from https://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/docs/install-guide.git .

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

How reproducible:
xmllint --noout --xinclude --postvalid --noent test.xml

See reproducer in https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=766884

This also break atoum test suite

Comment 2 Remi Collet 2015-03-24 13:21:08 UTC
See https://github.com/atoum/atoum/issues/449

Comment 3 Mike Vevea 2015-05-21 22:44:38 UTC
following because it affects publican

Comment 5 Jeff Fearn 🐞 2015-05-31 23:21:02 UTC
Escalating to urgent as this issue prevents publican from building on multiple distributions.

Comment 6 RaphaΓ«l Hertzog 2015-06-01 06:43:27 UTC
And not only publican, lots of documentation too. Cf the followup comments in the associated Debian bug report. It would be nice to have a fix.

DOMNode::cloneNode(): ID jdepend.bad already defined
2) PDepend\Report\Jdepend\ChartTest::testGeneratedSvgImageContainsExpectedPackages

Comment 10 Daniel Veillard 2015-09-10 12:17:22 UTC
Okay, fixed upstream:


I will make builds ! The one for F22 is task: 11032919


Comment 11 Remi Collet 2015-09-10 12:45:44 UTC
Just run some tests:


atoum-2.2.1-1 => test suite fails
php-pdepend-PHP-Depend-2.1.0-1 => test suite fails


atoum-2.2.1-1 => test suite OK
php-pdepend-PHP-Depend-2.1.0-1 => test suite OK

Thanks for the fix

(I will re-enable the test suite for above packages in rawhide (monitored by Koschei, when the patch will be applied there)

Comment 12 Daniel Veillard 2015-09-10 13:38:55 UTC
