Description Simon Pieters 2013-04-26 09:50:07 UTC
We have a fork of but this is problematic because we don't updates from other specs and we don't update the upstream xref when CSSOM specs change. We should drop the fork and use upstream directly. I tried to do this bug I get an error:

$ make
anolis --allow-duplicate-dfns --dump-xrefs=data/xrefs/css/cssom.json Overview.src.html /tmp/spec; rm -f /tmp/spec
No such file or directory: 'data/xrefs/css/cssom.json'. Please create it first.
It should contain a an object with a 'url' property (whose value ends with a '#').
anolis --output-encoding=utf-8 --omit-optional-tags --quote-attr-values \
	--w3c-compat --enable=xspecxref --enable=refs --w3c-shortname="cssom" \
	--force-html4-id --filter=".publish" --split-references-section --allow-duplicate-dfns Overview.src.html Overview.html
[Errno 20] Not a directory: u'data/specs.json'
make: *** [Overview.html] Error 1

I made `data` a symlink to my clone of xref. The cssom.json file does exist. Not sure why it isn't working...

Also, N.B. new instructions in README regarding need to:

git clone git:// data

in cssom directory.

Also, when running make with no pre-existing xref, you can use:

make cleanall all
