Description Daniel Berrange 2015-09-03 08:04:21 EDT
Description of problem:

Any doc which includes a <preface> section results in an error about duplicate IDs as follows:

FATAL ERROR: validity:513 in Application_Development_Guide.xml on line 8: ID Application_Development_Guide-Preface already defined
 at /usr/bin/publican line 1046.

The source definitely does not have a duplicate ID for this.

I even see this error if I try to re-build the publican source RPM - its own unit test suite fails with errors

t/410.Translate.t ............. ok
# Testing blib/script/publican

Comment 1 Pete Travis 2015-09-03 13:35:26 EDT
This is due to a libxml2 validation bug.  Publican and other tools relying on libxm2 are in sad shape until it is fixed.
