Hi!The last time I checked, there were some packaging issues. If you will
notice, he made tarballs with a "." in the path. For some reason, setup
can't handle this and ends up sticking the openjade binaries in the
folder usr/bin [instead of sticking it in bin/]. Of course since
/usr/bin is a virtual folder inside cygwin, the end result is that
Cygwin will refuse to acknowledge the existance of the openjade
binaries. Otherwise, with some minor tweaking of teTeX and the addition
of pdfjadetex/sgmlutils/sgmlutils-lite/docbook-utils, I was able to get
a fairly decent docbook build environment set up. Jon's email is
bouncing, so I've had no way to contact him regarding this...
A few months ago Jon Foster and Markus Hoenicka popped over to the
email@example.com mailing list with some packages for docbook
and openjade. I'd really like to see these included in the Cygwin internet
distribution, installable by Cygwin's setup.exe, since the Cygwin User's Guide
is built with docbook/openjade and right now developers have to cobble
together the parts.
right now has a openjade-1.3.1-2 Cygwin package (among many others).
What I'm wondering is, are you guys waiting on us to upload these, or
are these not quite ready for prime time yet?
