Package: emacs25-common
Version: 25.2+1-5
Severity: normal

emacs25-common contains the DocBook 4.2 schema, which is old. There
are newer 4.x schemas, and now even 5.x, which is largely incompatible
with 4.x. Updating the schema wouldn't be sufficient as several
schemas need to coexist. Such schemas should normally be provided by
separate packages (e.g. docbook-xml for 4.x and docbook5-xml for 5.x).
Only correct location rules need to be added, but this may need
cooperation from the docbook*-xml packages.

Note: This bug is similar to

against emacs24-common (initially filed in 2005!!!). The issue is much
more important now that DocBook 5 is available.
