Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Managing changes to the XSLT stylesheets

I think the problem Geraint wanted to point out is that a  
customization layer does not pick up altered templates in a new  
version of the stylesheets automatically. Assume you override the  
rendering of element A for whatever reason, based on version 1.68, and  
put that into a customization layer. Then you upgrade the official  
stylesheets to 1.73 which contain a new version of the template of  
element A. Thanks to your customization layer, you still use your  
(modified) version of 1.68.
