** Description changed:

+ Please backport yelp-tools 3.12.1-1 from 14.10 to 14.04
+ Reason for the backport:
+ ========================
  For many many months prior to the initial release of 14.04 (Trusty) we,
  the Ubuntu Doc Team, had been working on issues with the official
  documentation and the related higher level tools. Some solutions and
  workarounds had been able to be implemented in the documentation, other
  fixes required changes to yelp-tools (and yelp-xsl). In some cases the
  solutions are interdependent, meaning changes to the documentation
  requires the newer version of the tools and style sheets to result in
  the correct rendering for display or compiling into html.
  A bug report was submitted requesting that Ubuntu release 14.04 have at least yelp-tools version 3.11.3. That never happened.
  O.K. so now we are requesting a backport, as server type people tend to stay with LTS releases we need to be able to have people build the documents on 14.04 servers.
+ Testing:
+ ========
+ Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.
+ * trusty:
+ [X] Package builds without modification
+ [X] yelp-tools installs cleanly and runs
+ Test build kindly provided by Gunnar Hjalmarsson and available at:
+ https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-doc/+archive/ubuntu/ppa
+ No reverse dependencies
+ Note 1: I tested building the serverguide and desktop help, and examined
+ every difference. There are additional .css file entries, as things
+ evolved since my builds of the tools directly from git://git.gnome.org
+ /yelp-tools a year ago. We do not use the added .css file entries (we
+ didn't even know about them)
+ Note 2: There are probably other use cases for these tools, but I
+ wouldn't know what they are or how to test them.
