This error should be caught much sooner. Improved constraint validation.

stand up publican website, get a book, remove product version from bookinfo file, build book, then install the book on the website. verify the book does not install and you get an error std out.

Comment 3 Dan Macpherson 2012-06-16 02:01:27 UTC
Empty <productversion> no longer silent. Received error message for empty <productversion>:

Invalid format for version. Value (EMPTY) does not conform to constraint (^[0-9]) at /usr/bin/publican line 634

Setting to VERIFIED.

^^ Checked publican-3.0-0.fc17.t180.noarch on Fedora 17
