Subject Re: Manual generation questions
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2011 06:30:05 GMT
Hi David,

I mean that you can use the "free" version of PrinceXML to generate the 
Karaf PDF manual.
The Karaf PDF manual is "optional" as the first target is the HTML 
version. If you don't use the manual profile, the manual won't be 
generated (I mean it's not required for end-users build).
We already defined a manual profile to exclude the manual generation 
from the normal build.

think the license conditions would be ok for distributing the result from apache.

product.  If there's some way to make it ok to distribute the manual can we at least make
it so that you need to specify a profile to generate the pdf?

If PDF documents are sent as email attachments by Licensee, all email messages must contain
the www.princexml.com Web address in the message body.
