publican collab bug/feature request
Last modified: 2014-06-18 03:49:23 EDT
Description of problem:
publican does not handle <collabname> or <collab> tags in the most useful way
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. put those tags in the authorgroup tag
in the html it prints out an unmarked list beneath the last other credit. In the
PDF it prints out nothing.
The PDF should have some text. The best way to do this would be to have a
heading like "In collaboration with".
email me if you want help with deciding on a suitable heading.
This isn't a bug, it's expected behaviour: publican handles <collabname> or <coolab> in the default
manner as neither tag is recommended for use.
The tag to use for this sort of credit is <othercredit> with an appropriate attribute. An SME, for example
should probably be credited as follows
<title>Credits (ie who's to blame)</title>
Technical Editor for chapters 1 and 2 (covering Foo design and deployment).
If you think of <author> and <editor> as special cases of <othercredit> it's easier to grok.
