Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 304531
makeinfo is 3 revisions out of date, part of texinfo package
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
Description of problem:
FC7 is currently running with 5.8-15 which includes makeinfo version 4.8.
TexInfo 4.11 is available from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/texinfo/
texinfo 4.8 produces totally invalid xml-docbook output.
4.11 produces valid docbook
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run makeinfo --docbook on any of the emacs texi files.
The output is invalid docbook
Steps to Reproduce:
I don't know under what circumstances you update this package.
If I'm being naive, please accept my apologies.
If it's oversight please rectify.
I update packages mainly in devel (there is latest textinfo-4.11-1), in all
older Fedora branches only if somebody explicitly ask it (this situation, so
I'll update it;)).
It's better to be a bit behind and fix only bugs than bring some new errors or
broke behaviour (except devel, of course).
Thanks. I'll let the developer know.
Happy if you close this 'bug'!
