Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 51483
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
the stylesheet /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.9/docbook-utils.dsl should
be updated to 1.0-5. This is available from Dave Mason or GNOME CVS. It
has a couple of minor fixes over 1.0-4.
Uh - my copy is 1.0-4 - did I send you a fix to a particular problem that I
might have forgotten here? - Dave Mason
dcm: If you didn't make the commit, then I think someone must have hacked your
gnome.org CVS account :)
whoa - how odd... at any rate, looking at check-in 1.16 there does not seem to
be any 'bug fixes'. All I did was clean out some things like Red Hat manual size
page widths which were only used here. What is it that you want from this one in
the distribution style sheet?
I would like to see the changes at line 98 to only show the top level of
appendicies, and the changes at line 487 for the HTML DOCTYPE. I would also
like it if the smaller paper size could remain, as 7"x9" (or 8.5") is fairly
standard size for printed manuals.
That is already in there - look at
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6/docbook-utils.dsl line 103:
I thought about the doctype but many people have told me they are not using 4.01
yet so the default of 4.0 seemed fine (Norman will update it in the Mod sheets
when he thinks it necessary)
The paper size thing - Tim we could add this back(?) I can't imaging it is a
common size at all - and usually if you want something that small you need to
define the size yourself. Tim - its your call, we are supposed to be frozen and
these are not bug fixes but features. I would vote no for that reason, but it
can't break anything to add the paper size back.
Dave, you are correct. These are not important bug fixes, and it is far too
late to make these minor changes. I don't think any of these are RC blockers,
and this is a pure enchancement request.
OK - we can revisit these on the next go-round. Thanks! Tim - I am closing.
dcm: Is there a newer default stylesheet we should be using?
no - sorry I have had no time to think DSSSL and I haven't seen anyone change it
in the community.
