Subject: [PATCH 6/6] INSTALL: drop support for docbook-xsl before 1.74
Date: Sun, 29 Mar 2020 15:18:10 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <090ef11aec0476395935acf26c4072617ef1e6f2.1585486103.git.martin.agren@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1585486103.git.martin.agren@gmail.com>

Several of the previous commits have been bumping the minimum supported
version of docbook-xsl and dropping various workarounds. Most recently,
we made the minimum be 1.73.0.

In INSTALL, we claim that with 1.73, one needs a certain patch in
contrib/patches/. There is no such patch. It was added in 2ec39edad9
("INSTALL: add warning on docbook-xsl 1.72 and 1.73", 2007-08-03) and
dropped in 9721ac9010 ("contrib: remove continuous/ and patches/",
2013-06-03).

Rather than resurrecting version 1.73 and the patch and testing them,
just raise our minimum supported docbook-xsl version to 1.74.
