Jaromir has assisted in working out that for some reason FOP doesn't like the Author_Group content:
Fedora Project Contributors
This is however content that is valid as per the standard and also in use in other guides that build! For now I have:
1) Raised https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=756864
2) Commented out the Author_Group (the corpauthor is the only entry) to allow PDF builds to succeed.
3) Updated the f16 branch for this guide to:
- Remove the draft status.
- Update the links to files which change each release, as instructed in Musicians_Guide.xml.
4) Pushed as per instructions at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Publishing_a_document_with_Publican
Please let me know if there is anything I could/should do to further progress this.
