Apologies, but bugs in FOP 0.20.5 will no longer be fixed.
Please try FOP 0.93 or the Trunk, and see if the problem persists there.
I notice you closing a few 0.20.5 bugs and completely agree that we
shouldn't be spending time looking at these issues any more. The trouble
is people keep using 0.20.5 and raising bugs against it because our
website gives the impressive 0.20.5 is still a supported product, an
alternative to 0.93 rather than 0.93 being a replacement for 0.20.5. The
is confirmed by the fact the website has separate tabs for 0.20.5 and 0.93.
If we are serious about no longer supporting 0.20.5, which I think we
should be after nearly 2 years of 0.9x releases then I think we should
seriously consider refactoring the website slightly to get the point
across. Indeed to save us the bother of continually closing bugs against
0.20.5 with WONTFIX, we could remove all 0.20.x entries from the
bugzilla version list ;)
In terms of refactoring the website I think the tab titled 0.20.5 should
contain the page how to upgrade from previous versions, instead of
documentation on how to configure 0.20.5 etc. Then it is totally clear
that 0.20.5 is no longer a supported product and if folk choose to
continue to use it then they must support it themselves instead of
bombarding us with problems with relating to it.
I am not so sure if 0.20.5 should be removed from the compliance page
yet but we should also consider removing the binaries from the download
area. That will discourage any new users starting to use it instead of
the active 0.9x release, which they may well do in error at the moment
because of the website showing 0.20.5 and 0.93 side by side.
