** Description changed:

  Please backport yelp-xsl 3.12.0-1 (main) from utopic to trusty.
  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-xsl (and yelp-tools). 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-xsl version 3.11.5. 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.
  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.
  Test build kindly provided by Gunnar Hjalmarsson and available at:
  * trusty:
  [X] Package builds without modification
  [X] yelp-xsl installs cleanly and runs on Ubuntu server
  [X] yelp-xsl installs cleanly and runs on Ubuntu desktop
  [X] yelp-xsl installs cleanly and runs on Ubuntu desktop, with GNOME, GNOME flashback (Compiz), GNOME Flashback (Metacity), Ubuntu (default)
  Reverse dependencies:
  The following reverse-dependencies need to be tested against the new version of yelp-xsl. For reverse-build-dependencies (-Indep), please test that the package still builds against the new yelp-xsl. For reverse-dependencies, please test that the version of the package currently in the release still works with the new yelp-xsl installed. Reverse- Recommends, Suggests, and Enhances don't need to be tested, and are listed for completeness-sake.
  * gnome-core-devel
    [ ] trusty (Reverse-Depends)
+   I do not know how to test this one.
  * yelp-tools
-   [ ] trusty (Reverse-Build-Depends)
+   [X] trusty (Reverse-Build-Depends)
+   This is a linked backport request, with yelp-tools
  * ubuntu-gnome-desktop
-   [ ] trusty (Reverse-Depends)
+   [X] trusty (Reverse-Depends)
  * yelp
    [X] trusty (Reverse-Depends)
    [X] trusty (Reverse-Build-Depends)
  * libgda5
    [ ] trusty (Reverse-Build-Depends)
+   Not Applicable, no such package.
  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-xsl 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.
