Description of problem:

Fontconfig DTD is not installed in /usr/share/sgml/ nor is registered in the
system catalogs. Having normal DTD access is useful to process fonts.conf as for
example in a font rpm %post, %postun or %preun.

Non-validated xml processing is error-prone

'Red Hat Raw Hide' refers to the development tree for Red Hat Linux.
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues were not resolved in a more
timely manner. However, we do want to make sure that important 
don't slip through the cracks. If these issues are still present
in a current release, such as Fedora Core 5, please move these
bugs to that product and version. Note that any remaining Red Hat
Raw Hide bugs will be closed as 'CANTFIX' on September 30, 2006.
Thanks again for your help.

Comment 5 John Thacker 2006-10-29 15:26:34 UTC
Closing as CANTFIX per previous comment and lack of response.

Comment 6 Nicolas Mailhot 2006-10-29 19:41:56 UTC
Oops, this one passed through, should not be closed, it's still current

Comment 7 Behdad Esfahbod 2007-10-26 01:34:41 UTC
Upstreamed.  I don't see any reason to keep open.  If you have any idea how this
should be fixed, please comment on the upstream bug.
