Hello Joshua,

I vote pro this package and pro this plan, comments below.


> My eventual plan with this is to:

> 1. Get the DocBook SGML DTDs and DSSSL stylesheets packaged in a FHS-compliant
> way. (Also the XML and XSL ones, though Marcel Telka has already packaged 4.2
> without the SGML catalog part. It would be great if this could be eventually
> updated and moved to the FHS standard locations.)

> 2. Remove the old cygnus-based stylesheet references from winsup/doc in CVS
> (db2html, etc.), relying only on the FHS-compliant DocBook SGML installation.

> 3. Package openjade and opensp. These don't build with gcc3 yet, so that might
> take a while. This would allow users to build cygwin-doc with tools available
> from the Cygwin net release (with the possible exception of the info manual).

OpenSP-1.5.1 builds OOTB, including shared library after relibtoolizing.  Only
Openjade (1.3.2 or 1.3.3-pre) fails with compilation error.

> 4. Package a bunch of other DTDs like {X,}HTML, TEI, EAD and stuff like
> passivetex.
