Description Daniel Veillard 2002-12-13 16:11:30 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
xml-common owns the following files:


the 2 first are completely generic and should be DTD agnostic
the 2 last are completely tied to DocBook
The two should be decoupled

I suggest to either move /etc/xml and /etc/xml/catalog 
(empty containing only 
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE catalog PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD Entity Resolution XML Catalog V1.0//EN"
into the filesystem package
or move out the docbook resources from the package onto docbook
specific packages.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install xml-common
2.rpm -qil xml-common


Additional info:

The key point is that installing other DTD or XML resources
in the catalog should not have to rely on DocBook resources
being installed.

This issue still exists in Fedora Core 1 (I tried changing the fields
but was not permitted.)

Let's drop this, at this point it doesn't matter.
