Description of problem:
Publican used to package various common content for the "common" brand. As of version 3.1.0+ only the en-US content is included in the common brand. Therefore if the brand itself (common, publican-redhat, etc...) doesn't include translated items such as Conventions.xml or Feedback.xml then the content will show up in untranslated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.1.0 and 3.1.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build a translated book using the common brand or any brand that doesn't include it's own translations.
Common Content based material appears in English and not the translated locale.
Since previous versions used to include the translations I would expect the content to come out translated.
Are you using DocBook 5?
I've only tested using DocBook 4.5 and the example above is DocBook 4.5.
The main problem I could see, is if you check an installation of publican 3.1.0 or 3.1.1 you'll see that there are no translations in:
