Description Sébastien Wilmet 2017-08-13 06:57:17 EDT
Description of problem:

See this gtk-doc bug:

The bug occurs since I've upgraded to Fedora 26. See this comment:

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

Works fine with: docbook-style-xsl-1.79.1-1.fc25
Bug occurs with: docbook-style-xsl-1.79.2-4.fc26

How reproducible:
100% reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build the gtk-doc documentation of e.g. a GNOME module. Or running `make check` in gtk-doc.

Actual results:
The api-index-*.html files are missing for specific "since" versions.

Expected results:
All *.html files are correctly generated from the *.xml files.

Additional info:
I see that the docbook-style-xsl package on Fedora has some downstream patches. So the bug maybe comes from one of those patches.

The bug has also been filed in docbook upstream:
Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2017-08-16 05:47:23 EDT
Thanks for report and for contacting upstream!
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-03 04:11:27 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '26'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 4 Sébastien Wilmet 2018-05-05 08:02:34 EDT
Still the same problem on Fedora 28.
