* bumping version to tldp-0.7.7

* handle EPIPE and INT with signal.SIG_DFL
2016-03-10 Martin A. Brown <>
* bumping version to 0.5.3

way that a user would use the utility

* improve README.rst
2016-03-09 Martin A. Brown <>
* remove unused markdown and rst skeleton processors
* pass **kwargs through all processor tools
2016-03-07 Martin A. Brown <>
* add support for --builddir, ensure that --builddir is on the same
filesystem as --pubdir
* add new option --publish; can't replace a directory atomically, but
get as close as possible by swapping the newly built output (from
--builddir) with the old one (formerly in --pubdir)
* switch to using 'return os.EX_OK' from functions in that
can be tested and/or wrapped in sys.exit(function(args))
* testing improvements for Asciidoc and
2016-03-06 Martin A. Brown <>
* provide user-discoverable support for --doctypes and --statustypes
* correct removal of Docbook4XML generated source document during build
2016-03-05 Martin A. Brown <>
* use a simplified technique (arbitrary attributes on function objects)
to generate the DAG used for topological sorting and build order
generation (thanks to Python mailing lists for the idea)
2016-03-04 Martin A. Brown <>
* bumping version to 0.4.8
* add FO generation XSL
* do not set a system default for --sourcedir / --pubdir (user must
specify, somehow)
* DocBook5/DocBook4: process xincludes before validation with xmllint
* add support for AsciiDoc detection and processing
2016-03-03 Martin A. Brown <>
* validate all documents (where possible) before processing
* provide support for DocBook 5.0 (XML)
* correct --loglevel handling in (finally works properly!)
* complete support for --script output
2016-03-02 Martin A. Brown <>
* bumping version to 0.4.5
* fix handling of STEMs which contain a '.' in the name
* review signature identification in each DOCTYPE processor and
validate and reconcile errors with PUBLIC / SYSTEM identifiers
for the SGML and XML declarations

* begin overhauling the porcelain in
2016-02-29 Martin A. Brown <>
* overhaul generation of inventory object from sources/outputs
* add command-line features and options; actions in particular
* continue improving coverage, at 100% on
* complete CascadingConfig object creation
2016-02-26 Martin A. Brown <>
* generate a DAG for each processor class, so dependencies can
be localized (controlled, abstracted) to each processor class
* use topological sort of the DAG to drive generation of the shellscript,
which leads to massive simplification of the generate() method
* user can specify explicit file to process
* better PDF generation logic (relying on jw)
* provide support for --script outputs (logical equiv. of --dryrun)
* if a document processor is missing prerequisites, gripe to logging
and skip to the next document
* support a SourceDocument named by its directory
* add timing to each processor (some documents take minutes to process,
others just a few seconds; good for users trying to understand which...)
2016-02-25 Martin A. Brown <>
* overhaul where and how logging module gets called; is main
* adding --skip feature; can skip STEM, DOCTYPE or STATUSTYPE
* automatically detect configuration fragments in document processors
with object inspection

* add support for --detail (and --verbose) for both source and output docs
* pass args into all driver functions
* get rid of and references (not necessary any longer)

(and start switching to contextlib 'with' usage to avoid in future)
* start generalizing the build process for all doctypes in
* move all generic functionality into BaseDoctype object

* make logging readability improvements: clarity, relevance and alignment
2016-02-22 Martin A. Brown <>
* adding ArgumentParser wrapper so can support config file + envars
* all sorts of work for support cascading configuration

--docbook4xml-xmllint; owned by the Docbook4XML object
* add support for --dump-cfg, --dump-env, --dump-cli, --debug-options
* adding the license text (MIT) and all of that stuff
* creating and fixing the

2016-02-18 Martin A. Brown <>
* process and report on documents in case-insensitive stem-sorted order
* add many docstrings for internal usage
* move all source directory scanning logic out of the SourceCollection
object; easier to test and simpler to understand
2016-02-17 Martin A. Brown <>
* add logic for testing file age, assuming a fresh checkout of the
source documents; use filesystem age to determine whether or not
a document rebuild is necessary
* initial support for (eventually, the main user entry point
and (for managing the identification and pairing of
source and output documents)
2016-02-16 Martin A. Brown <>

stems, sample valid and broken documents
