Subject: docbook5-xml: upgrade stylesheet fails to handle titles in qandaset
Date: Wed, 31 Mar 2010 15:52:32 +0000
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: docbook5-xml
Version: 5.0-2
Severity: normal
File: /usr/share/xml/docbook/stylesheet/docbook5/db4-upgrade.xsl

The upgrading stylesheet omits titles in qandaset, because there is no
special-case handling for qandaset and therefore the default behavior
for title is to ignore it.  The stylesheet should preserve these.

This is a problem for me since I am updating some stylesheets that work
with DocBook 4 to DocBook 5.  Part of the automated testing I do
involves upgrading the DocBook 4 testcases (using db4-upgrade.xsl) and
testing that the output of my stylesheets is the same.

A testcase is available at
