Package: xmlto
Version: 0.0.18-5
Severity: important


Trying to convert an XML that outputs the HTML to directories, xmlto
fails to copy the finished work from the /tmp/xmlto.xxxxx working
directory, to the one was invoked.

For example, try to convert Dive into Python's sources:

After all is done, cp doesn't copies anything, because skips

Writing installing_python/windows.html for section(install.windows)
Writing installing_python/macosx.html for section(install.macosx)
Writing installing_python/macos9.html for section(install.macos9)
[... skipped ...]
cp: omitting directory `appendix'
cp: omitting directory `dynamic_functions'
[ etc. ]

I suppose a cp -r should do the trick, and be OK for the rest.

Feel free to lower the severity, but I considered this bug enough
important, because you can not tell xmlto not to clean the files in
/tmp, so all work is lost (unless you interrupt the process).

Thanks in advance.
