Extension request: DocBookExport
Closed, DeclinedPublic


In place of mPDF (T9582), I'm moving right ahead to the only PdfBook alternative left, DocBookExport. As stated in the linked filing, DocBookExport was once an experimental part of Referata, and furthermore boasts multi-page support unlike mPDF.

This requires the "Figures" extension, however--but that's in beta at this writing, and as @Robkelk expressed his concern at the Noticeboard, "who knows when a change to Figures might make DocBookExport unusable?"

As before, the likes of DBE would sure come in handy for my future books. Either that, or we'll have to give up until further notice and resort to an external/third-party tool. To Reception and/or UO: How promising are the chances this time?

As for the question, I'll let @Universal_Omega answer

This extension, I am not very confident in approving at all, due to the external dependencies, other extensions, and packages it requires. I would rather actually try and get PdfBook working again, which I will try and see if I can do some time. I am very sorry for the inconvenience, but once again, I unfortunately must mark this request as declined.
