Documentation Breakage at 2.5.6




Hi All,

I'm trying to upgrade the NonStop port from 2.3.7 upward eventually to
2.15.1 and hit a snag on documentation. The xmlto component is a bit new to
me and I hit the following error:

    XMLTO git-remote-testgit.1
xmlto: /home/git/git/Documentation/git-remote-testgit.xml does not validate
(status 3)
xmlto: Fix document syntax or use --skip-validation option
I/O error : Attempt to load network entity

load external entity

"http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/4.5/docbookx.dtd";

The -skip-validation option just takes me to a different problem validating
via sourceforge URL that appears not to exist anymore, although I had to
modify ./git/Documention/Makefile, which is vexing.

    XMLTO git-remote-testgit.1

xsl:import : unable to load
http://docbook.sourceforge.net/release/xsl/current/manpages/docbook.xsl
Makefile:328: recipe for target 'git-remote-testgit.1' failed

Any advice on getting past this? It would be nice to get git help to working
again. An answer of "you need to get past 2.5.6" is ok too as long as I know
where I'm going.

Thanks,
Randall
