On Guix Git commit c7d74a9bccfc1b1274fc8754a6e78bb6887c7fea, at least
some manpages are not being built correctly for packages such as elogind
and gnome-keyring-daemon. Are we seeing raw groff input? I'm not sure of
the technology used here.

Thank you for reporting this.  I've noticed them too, and somehow
thought the technology was broken.

The technology is docbook xml and xlstproc to transform the source into
man pages (which are in the nroff format, I think).

I've read the same kind of issue reported to the bind9
project and its resolution, which was very helpful:
https://gitlab.isc.org/isc-projects/bind9/-/issues/2310.  It seems it's
a DocBook XSL stylesheet problem resolved in
https://github.com/docbook/xslt10-stylesheets/pull/111 but not yet
released...

My first idea was to apply this patch, so I went ahead and made:

Unfortunately the resulting docbook-xsl/fixed package doesn't seem to
work.

Based on this knowledge (from the same issue linked above):

But that also doesn't work...

Ahem...

I guess we'll need to wait for Docbook to fix their things and issue a
new release, else use one of their snapshots.

On an unrelated (to the problem at hand note) I've also realized my
confusion in adding a docbook-xsl-ns package.  The legacy suffix (1.79.1
and older) )was inverted for 1.79.2 (-ns was removed, so the docbook-xsl
*is* namespaced while -nons was added to denote the non-namespaced
version).

I should probably get rid of this docbook-xsl-ns package unless 1.79.1
is truly needed and replace it by docbook-xsl-nons.  I tried to use this
with samba but it also didn't work.

That's frustrating!

Good night,

Maxim
