#55255 closed defect (fixed)

docbook-xsl @1.79.2_0 changed stylesheet URIs and broke existing XML files (regression)

Port: docbook-xsl


Version 1.79.2 released on GitHub changed the canonical URL for the stylesheets from to

This means that existing DocBook XML files that use the the former will now not find the local copy installed by the port, and either trigger a download from that URI or fail (in case download is forbidden).

This is preventing at least one port to build, as reported here:

I'm not sure what the correct solution is:

  • if all dependent ports should patch their XML files with the new URI
  • make both URIs be supported somehow (not sure if this is even possible)
  • make "legacy" and "new" docbook-xsl be installable side-by-side
