I see what is being suggested, and I did get it to work. What I did was
to add an attribute to a tag, for example I added the following to the
<para revision="systemd">A test</para>
And then I changed the build instructions in the Makefile to:
$(Q)xsltproc --nonet \
--output $(RENDERTMP)/lfs-html2.xml \
--stringparam profile.revision sysv \
xsltproc --nonet \
--stringparam chunk.quietly $(CHUNK_QUIET) \
--stringparam rootid "$(ROOT_ID)" \
--stringparam base.dir $(BASEDIR)/ \
The book still builds, and the test paragraph is missing. If I change the
two instances of sysv above to systemd, then the paragraph prints.
My knowledge of xsl is still pretty weak but here are some references I
have been using:
In other areas, I've been able to merge the two books in a bit more
cumbersome method than the above. I had to have separate systemd pages
for about 30 out of 255 xml files. With the above, I should be able to
reduce those 30 separate pages substantially.
For the change log, it appears we just need to add the appropriate
revision= to the entries for those that only affect one book.
My goal is to just run 'make' to build the sysv book and 'make systemd'
for the other. I think the method may work for BLFS also.
