Reassigning right back to you and setting to grave again.
Please discuss this issue first _before_ arbitrarily reassigning.

The problem is that the installation manual is in XML and does not itself 
contain the deprecated code. The manual just has:
   some text

So, I CANNOT fix this by changing things in the manual.

Instead the packages that contain the stylesheets/programs used to 
generate the code processed by docbook-xsl need to be fixed.

The last week before a release is _not_ the time to introduce changes like 
these. New versions introduced into Sarge during the freeze should NOT 
contain functional changes, but only essential bug fixes.
This version of docbook-xsl clearly violates that principle and IMO the 
change should be reverted, especially as the changelog makes no mention 
at all of any critical issues being fixed with the new version.
