Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-1013) absolute URLs in PDF
Date Wed, 20 Jun 2007 03:22:25 GMT


David Crossley commented on FOR-1013:

The patch is incomplete.

See the comments at:
 Re: Stop PDF Summary...

New skin parameters need to be added to the default skinconf and XSL and new DTD. Search the
code for another parameter (e.g. "disable-copyright-footer") to see how it is handled.

I gather that you must have disabled skinconf validation in file.
