DocBook XSLT 2.0 updates

Volume 4, Issue 22; 26 Mar 2020

Different repo, same Gradle update.

The other day, I reported having updated the XML Calabash Gradle plugin. This morning, I realized the same update needed to be applied to DocBook as well.

The DocBook XSLT 2.0 stylesheets ship with a Gradle plugin that makes them easy to use. That plugin was suffering from some of the same deficiencies as my XML Calabash plugin. Hardly surprising since one is an extension of the other.

I rolled up my sleeves and fixed the plugin. And worked out how to make the maven-publish plugin work in the DocBook stylesheet repository. And got signing to work again. And I worked out how to deal with some weird new rule about having to extend configurations in order to refer to them.

And I did eventually get 2.5.0 published.

Share and enjoy.
