Needed for xerces to be built from surce completely
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 47110 [details]
since we have circular dependencies with xerces and xalan we should add this
package as a binary version to the portage tree. xerces needs xml-stylebook,
xml-stylebook needs xalan and xalan needs xerces. we could break the dependency
chain by adding this package in a binary version. since this project is only
available via cvs atm i've made a snapshot which can be found here:
Could we rather bootstrap xml-stylebook inside xerces? I.e. compile xerces with the bundled xml-stylebook.jar, then compile xml-stylebook.jar with the freshly compiled xerces?
Both would be dojar'ed into /usr/share/xerces-<slot>
i've played around with xerces a lot, i.e. with the build process and on runtime and figured out that we don't need xml-stylebook at all. it was needed to generate some docs but we can still generate javadocs without this package. that makes life for us much easier. because of this i close this one, no other package relies up on xml-stylebook.
I think stylebook would be useful not just for xerces, but e.g. building docs of batik too. Javadocs aren't everything.
Now, who can find the sources somewhere? :)
You will need to do a snapshot ebuild for this as there is no official release. Fortunately, that shouldnt be a big deal as the project is fairly stagnant (the last change being made ~3 years ago).
