[xml/sgml-pkgs] Bug#622362: xmlroff: no page number in index, no footnote, funky list ...

Package: xmlroff
Version: 0.6.2-1
Severity: important

It seems this very immature software is zombie state.
Upstream is quiet over a year.

Although this is used to build CJK for release note, this has quite a
bit of problem.

 * Page number is not calcurated.
 * Footnote contents are completely ignored.
 * List is followed by the same number of empty lines.

This is very bad.  Just because it does not abort does not mean program
is functional enough to be released as a part of main and used for
official page build.

This problem is for both cairo and gp.
This happens in English too. (See attached tar ball.)

If this is bug in fo.xsl used in release-notes or fo tool chain, please
let us know.
