Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-908) A prototype plugin to browse a repository of docbook documents

David Crossley commented on FOR-908:

Thanks. I did a "quick" review of the licensing situation. Perhaps some other Forrest committers
can comment too.

Ross, on the user mailing list you wondered whether we can include the DocBook XSL. Its license
does permit us to. We already include some DocBook DTDs. What has prevented us in the past
is the size of the XSL. We can expect people to have the XSL on their system as a pre-requisite.
Another option that we discussed in the past was to develop a download mechanism for such

Nigel, the other issues are the parts that you developed:

The sitemaps and some stylesheets are fine, an obvious extension of what the Forrest default
plugin template provides. We would update the license headers to the new ASF header.

There are some other stylesheets article*.xsl that have been generated. I am not clear about
the situation with those. Would you please explain their origin.

The minutes.dtd is your DocBook customisation. Does this and the minutes*.xsl need to be included?
They seem to be a different purpose to this plugin.

What is lib/xfc.jar ?

I gather that everything under src/documentation/content/rep is your example data which would
not be added to Forrest. Whoever develops this plugin would create a separate basic example.
