I see the following minor quirks in the catalog.xml
file included with docbook-slides-3.4.0:
- Its comments refer to "DocBook Website" instead of
"DocBook Slides".
- The second rewriteSystem refers to 3.4 instead of 3.4.0.
- The catalog only maps system identifiers; it would be
nice if it also mapped public identifiers.

    Hi Justus,

    Thanks for the bug report.

    OK, I have fixed that in CVS.

    That is by design. We decided to version the DTD
    separately from stylesheets. The version of the
    styleshsets is 3.4.0, and the version of the DTD is 3.4.

    OK, I will add them and post another dialog here after
    I'm done.

    Ah, yes, I remember this discussion. In this case, the bug
    is on the Web: the DTD is located under .../3.4.0/..., not
    under .../3.4/... at docbook.sourceforge.net.

    Thanks!

    Yep, I know. I reckon we could fix it with symlinks,
    but I don't want to because I think it's just a symptom
    of the real problem, which is thet the Slides and
    Website distros are "hybrids" that package the
    DTD/schemas with the stylesheets.

    I think they chould be packaged separately: The
    DTD/schemas as separatte releases, with the stylesheets
    just rolled into the main docbook-xsl disto. That will
    solve the versioning/URI problem, along with some other
    problems.

    I'm just waiting to see if I can get consensus from the
    other members of the project before making the change.
