I would like to propose to package perl-App-XML-DocBook-Builder as it is 
a prerequisite for building the docs for the new upstream fortune-mod.
It is packaged on Mageia and PCLinuxOS distributions:


The usual sources and binaries are available on Google drive:

perl-App-XML-DocBook-Builder	0.1003


Feedback on how to set the proper BUILD_/REQUIRES welcome.

I would like to adopt fortune-mod to get it updated as I run it daily:

fortune-mod	last 1.99.1 -> proposed 3.6


Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
