I've been avoiding XML-land for some time now. Unfortunately I have a *cough* few modules there.
It all started nice and simple - wanting to release a new AxKit. But make test failed with the current CPAN version of XML::LibXSLT. But passed with CVS of XML::LibXSLT. Unfortunately XML::LibXSLT's make test failed. So I got stuck hacking that, with the plan to get that out to CPAN so I could release the new AxKit.
RPM hell ensued, as it usually does, trying to upgrade pre-requisite libs. Ugh.
Anyway, the upshot of all this is that XML::LibXSLT 1.58 is now on CPAN.
AxKit 1.7 next.
