Subject Re: xml-fop Build Failed
Date Thu, 28 Oct 2004 15:58:08 GMT
I achieved a BUILD SUCCESSFUL running forrest-0.7-dev. Whew! You can  
check out the site here[1]. The files used to create the FOP site  
(tar.gzip'd) are here[2].

I still have a few problems I'm trying to resolve

see below...

I'm sorry about that. I first got on the job of getting the xml-fop web  
site updated ages ago (6 months?). Unfortunately, the files were in  
disarray. Soon after I started I saw that forrest was moving to 0.6, so  
I decided to make xml-fop ready for the transition to 0.6. This meant  
creating a site.xml file, removing the book.xml files, and making  
assorted other changes (skinconf.xml,, tabs.xml,  

Over this long period of time, I must've forgotten that I was the one  
who created 'site.xml' on my local drive. I have since become a  
committer for xml-fop, and just committed site.xml.

I never was able to get that patch to work. However, since I've been  
able to workaround the problem, I think I'm OK.

I do have a few problems I need to resolve:

- compliance.html/.xml - *no* content (should look like[5])
- design/ - *no* content (should look  
- all links in *navigation* from  
   display *no* content (click[7] and try links in site navigation menu)

- the tab corner images do not render

- I'd like to figure out how to transform svg=>PNG+PDF on the fly. For  
   I will be generating all PNG & PDF files and placing them in their
   respective resources/* or content/* directories.
- I think the breadcrumb should display below the tabs (although that  
may be skin-related)
