Description Paul Dickson 2005-12-12 22:29:03 EST
Description of problem:
xmlto is creating man files with the .sp groff commands not preceeded with a
space or linefeed.  Groff then doesn't see these and incorporates them into the
output text.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xmlto-0.0.18-9

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install git-core-0.99.9a
2. man git-repack (although any of the man file will have this)
3.
  
Actual results:
Excerpt:

DESCRIPTION
       This script is used to combine all objects that do not currently reside
       in a "pack", into a pack..sp A pack is a collection of objects,
       individually compressed, with delta compression applied, stored in a
       single file, with an associated index file..sp Packs are used to reduce
       the load on mirror systems, backup engines, disk storage, etc..sp


Expected results:

DESCRIPTION
       This script is used to combine all objects that do not currently reside
       in a "pack", into a pack.

       A pack is a collection of objects, individually compressed, with delta
       compression applied, stored in a single file, with an associated index
       file.

       Packs are used to reduce the load on mirror systems, backup engines,
       disk storage, etc.


Additional info:
This may be due to xmlto's use of:
  http://docbook.sourceforge.net/release/xsl/current/manpages/docbook.xsl
or xmlto's interpretation.

I downloaded
http://kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/RPMS/SRPMS/git-0.99.9m-1.src.rpm and did
a "rpmbuild --rebuild" to verify the problem.

Definitely a style-sheet issue; xmlto is a tiny shell script that just runs
xsltproc.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2005-12-13 05:03:00 EST
Would be good to get this fixed for FC5.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2006-01-19 07:05:05 EST
Fixed in docbook-style-xsl-1.69.1-3.
