Re: Including OS Version information on DocBook elements

/ Nik Clayton <> was heard to say:
| I've set followups to the FreeBSD Doc. Proj. mailing list,

Another list for DocBook issues. <sigh/>

It would be non-trivial. Especially since it would have to vary
from system to system. You're asking the stylesheet to do a fair
number of things to determine if RELENG_2_1_3 is in between
RELENG_2_1_0 and RELENG_2_2. Not impossible, it might even be a
rewarding challenge to implement. I'd call it a two-star
problem. I've solved enough of those in DSSSL to keep me quite
content for this lifetime. And I'm working on some three star
problems in XSL at the moment :-)
