Description Ruediger Landmann 2012-03-12 23:58:40 UTC
Description of problem:
When Publican builds a book in txt format, it doesn't replace an existing txt file from a previous build. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new book in Publican
2. build the book in text format: publican build --formats txt --langs en-US
3. note the content of the book, specifically "This is a test paragraph"
4. edit Chapter.xml to include some new text
5. rebuild the book: publican build --formats txt --langs en-US
6. note the content of the book, specifically "This is a test paragraph"
Actual results:
Content has not changed

Expected results:
Content changes to include new text added in step 4

Additional info:
"publican clean" followed by another rebuild includes the new content as expected.

Forced txt to rebuild html-single once per build.

Verified, text only build refreshes text and incorporates changes as specified in c#1.

Verified on:
