version 0.8.7 was released on April 18, 2006, while the last update of
the debian packages was on Sun, 18 Jul 2004
Thank you for updating the docbook2x debian package !
For the moment, docbook-utils is dead upstream, I encounter many bugs in
docbook2man (for sgml to man here) which prevent people from providing
manpages for debian packages (in my case module-assistant) :
- it doesn't use the date defined in the sgml source ( http://bugs.debian.org/214982 )
- it doesn't escape strings beginning with ".ch", which break the man
output (and imply the lost of some words) if the line begins with ".ch"
Since docbook2x is very active and manages both xml and sgml docbook, it
would be great to have it up to date :-)
