docbook-xml (4.2-10) unstable; urgency=low

   * preinst: remove crufty old /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dtd/xml handling
     and instead flush out [0-9]* in that dir because dpkg cannot really

     in the sgml-data package now (which is what supplies the XML character
   * add XML catalogs for 3.1.7, 4.0 and 4.1.2
     Note that these catalogs will be centrally registered on install when
     the xml-core package shows up; for now, users have to register them by
     hand.  Be sure to also remember to register ISO 8879:1986 XML
     characters from the sgml-data package.


docbook-xml (4.2-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4//EN" and "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML//EN"

docbook-xml (4.2-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * postinst: /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dtd/xml/4.2.cr2 was hanging around
     for some reason, must be some sort of odd dpkg symlink handling bug;
     remove it if it exists as a dir
   * examples: validation was failing if opensp wasn't installed since
     nsgmls needs "-mdeclaration/xml.soc", closes: #161891
   * README.Debian: updates and corrections; add more introductory text
   * debhelper 4 compatibility enabled
   * policy compliance checked against 3.5.8, no other changes needed
   * control: fix stylesheet package names for Suggests; downgrade docbook
     recommendation to Suggests; rewrite the summary line and description
   * rules: split out tests into a test target, called by binary-indep,
     some changes for debhelper v4

docbook-xml (4.2-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * new upstream version
   * preinst: remove danging symlinks prior to installation, requires that
     symlinks is installed.  In the lack of information from the bug
     submitters, I'm hoping it closes: #143780
   * depend on symlinks
   * explicitly register DTD 4.1.2 rather than 4.1, hoping to close another
     bug I cannot reproduce, closes: #148489
   * removing conffiles is not allowed by policy, even if the package no
     longer uses them; we do remove the old junk in the purge target,
     however; closes: #143777
   * rules: unhack stuff done for the wacky cr numbering; don't make a 4.2
     -> 4.2 symlink; dangling symlinks are displayed, should stop the build
     but I couldn't work it out...
   * preinst: remove /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dtd/xml/4.2 symlink on install
     or else the 4.2.cr2 directory gets installed into

docbook-xml (4.1.99really4.2.cr2-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * new upstream version
   * add home page and author to package description
   * 4.2.cr2: correct some references to CR1; some references remain
   * 4.2.cr2: correct some invalid system references to the ISO entities;
     this was a flaw in the 4.1.cr1 Debian versions
   * postinst machinery to remove reference to 4.2.cr1 catalog which is gone
   * The question of XML catalog report requires system-wide coordination;
     it's up to users to set this up for themselves; I don't know what I,
     as a person who is shipping this DTD, can do to help.
     For now, it is only shipped in the dir with the DTDs as 'catalog.xml'.
     When there is a policy for me to follow to register it, I will gladly
     follow it.  If anyone has a suggestion about how I can better handle
     the situation in a way that will not cause user confusion or break
     backwards compatibility for folks using jade to process XML (like me),
     please do let me know.  Bug #134789 reassigned for sgml-base for
     planning; probably will result in a new xml-base package.

docbook-xml (4.1.99really4.2.cr1-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * fix a problem building from source, perms in the diff aren't
     preserved, forgot about that; closes: #139538
   * include docbook 4.2 validation in the examples; I hope they fix the
     "unused parameter" warnings caused by the 4.2 cr1 DTD...

docbook-xml (4.1.99really4.2.cr1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * new upstream version, pre-release of docbook-xml 4.2
     note that docbook 4.1 is still considered the latest version and
     latest 4.x version until 4.2 is actually released
   * rearrange file area completely; now the "upstream tarball" is actually
     a conglomerated set of all the included docbook-xml DTD Zips; this
     allows one to see in the diff how we vary from the upstream DTDs and
   * standards compliant with 3.5.6
   * debian/rules: use a separate shell-script for more flexible operation,
     deal with new versions more easily, and reducing redundancy
   * 4.1.2: catalog got some DTDDECLs wrong, fixed
   * 4.0 catalog wasn't registered before, fixed

docbook-xml (4.1.2-7) unstable; urgency=medium

     names, so they are absolute references, thus we do not rely on
     /usr/share/sgml being in the system entity search path
     closes: #102605
   * this is severity medium because the way it is now will break a lot of
     tools that don't have SGML Open Catalog support

docbook-xml (4.1.2-6) unstable; urgency=medium

   * oops, last upload was supposed to be urgency medium

     closes: #91984

   * debian/postrm: remove useless and stale file
     closes: #101181

docbook-xml (4.1.2-4) unstable; urgency=low

     in sgml-data 1.4.1; require that sgml-data version when building
     (thanks to ddkilzer for patch)
     closes: #85744
   * debian/rules: transition from /usr/lib/sgml to /usr/share/sgml and new
     SGML policy of delegated SGML catalogs
   * debian/postinst,prerm: likewise
   * debian/rules: check for dangling symlinks (informational); better
