Patch: Build DTD docs, provide -doc subpackage in RPM

Reported by: Owned by: desai
Priority: minor Milestone: Bcfg2 1.2.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-client Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:


I've attached a patch that does two things:

  1. Uses xs3p (, an XSLT stylesheet, to do transforms on the Bcfg2 DTD and automatically generates documentation on the DTD. I added a build_dtddoc command to that performs the transforms using lxml.etree and puts the resulting HTML in build/dtd. I also added some documentation to bundle.xsd; it's not much, but should demonstrate the ease with which the DTD can be documented with this system in use.
  1. I added both build_sphinx and build_dtddoc commands to the RPM specfile, and added a -doc subpackage to put the resulting HTML in. The specfile builds successfully on CentOS 5 and Fedora 13.

There are a couple of known issues:

  1. The output from xs3p uses pop-ups to present documentation on non-global components, which, due to the way the Bcfg2 DTD is written, is most of them. This is ugly. It could be improved by modifying the XSLT, but I'm not a web designer and wasn't sure the best way to present that information. Either way, this is a start.
  1. The python-sphinx10 package in EPEL 5 apparently has a bug where it fails to add itself to sys.path after installing. There's some ugliness in the spec file to get around that.
