'docbook-utils' expects jade's `nsgmls' binary to be available in the system, as can be seen in `bin/sgmldiff', `doc/man/Makefile' etc. 'openjade' depends on 'opensp', which provides `onsgmls'. Since 'docbook-utils' depends on 'openjade' and 'openjade' conflicts with 'jade', it would be better to replace nsgmls calls by onsgmls.

Some of the consequences of having nsgmls calls in docbook-utils are: `/usr/bin/sgmldiff' won't be able to parse SGML files (therefore, it won't work) and `backends/man' will fail when calling `nsgmls'.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
docbook-utils 0.6.14
opensp 1.5.2-5
openjade 1.3.2-4
jade 1.2.1-10

* config and/or log files etc.

fwupd's package() log attached shows error message "nsgmls: command not found" by /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.14/backends/man

Steps to reproduce:
- sgmlsdiff file1.sgml file2.sgml
- docbook2man file.sgml
This task depends upon

Makes sense. Looking at BLFS they add much simpler fix to opensp: a symlink :)

They add a lot more symlinks to make it compatible to jade. I guess we should add all symlinks there and make it also conflict with jade. This should allow us to fully replace jade.

Indeed, much better use symlinks.

Please test opensp 1.5.2-6 in testing repo.

You can't set opensp to conflict with jade when openjade provides jade, otherwise opensp will try to remove openjade to solve such conflicts. I think you have to choose one between opensp conflicts and openjade provides or, maybe, unify opensp and openjade in one package.

Should be fixed now opensp 1.5.2-7 and jade 1.2.1-12. Initial bug should now be solved.

On the long way we can try to fully drop jade and build everything with openjade. But this is another task.

Yep, it's fixed. Thanks for your support.
