Description Stephen Gordon 2011-11-24 22:15:34 UTC
Created attachment 536063 [details]

Description of problem:

The Fedora Musician's Guide for F16 contains the following in the Author_Group.xml, no other entries exist:

           Fedora Project Contributors

For reasons unknown this causes all kinds of consternation for FOP when building the PDF from publican, despite this exact tag set building fine in other books. I have attached the log for your amusement.

In the interim I have commented out the xi:include for the Author_Group.xml and the PDF build now works. If you wanted to reproduce I would:

1. git clone git://git.fedorahosted.org/docs/musicians-guide.git
2. Remove the comment markers around the xi:include of Author_Group.xml in Book_Info.xml
3. Attempt to run:

publican build --embedtoc --publish --formats epub,html,html-single,pdf --langs en-US

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


Comment 1 Jeff Fearn 🐞 2011-11-29 01:25:56 UTC
Added handling for corpauthor in custom table layout.

Added to branches/publican-2x.

This may be the last fix for FOP ever!

Committed revision 1964.

Comment 4 Misha H. Ali 2012-04-22 21:28:47 UTC
Verified PDF local build (publican build) correctly with only the authorgroup element provided in c#1 in the Author_Group.xml file for the book.

Verified on:

OS: Fedora 16
Publican: 3.0
Release designation: publican-3.0-0.fc16.t166.src.rpm
