There are still some copyright / licensing issues I need to look into /
clarify regarding this package. The Sourceforge project page claims that
the license is "Public Domain", but there is nothing in the source code
or elsewhere to support this. In addition, the source distribution
contains some W3C-copyright files (XHTML DTDs) which may not be licensed
in a manner suitable for inclusion in Debian.

Hi,

what is that status of this ITP? Are there preliminary packages to test
somewhere?

Greetings,
Joachim

I guess this is sort of on hold for the moment; the build system requires
some convincing to use dependencies from their Debian packages rather than
the embedded copies and I haven't had a chance to work on this again. I'd
like to eventually close this bug, but in the meantime this probably
shouldn't discourage anyone with more time to spend on the matter from
picking it up.

I've finally taken some time to look at this ITP again. Unfortunately,
it seems that the versions of sac/flute that are included with
css2xslfo are modified versions that do not correspond to any version
I can find elsewhere. The modifications are quite extensive (they seem
to mostly relate to CSS3 support), so I think the only way the package
can work is if it builds and ships private versions of these
libraries; I think this may be feasible, but will require quite a bit
more work.
