I am talking about this:

I am the maintainer of gtk-doc - a tool to build api docuemntation for the gnome
project via docbook. For years fop has failed to produce pdfs from the otherwise
correct docbook (the docbook to to html/fo step works fine). I have submitted
several bugs and they are unanswered. dblatex also spits some warnings, but
atleast it goes through and we get a decent pdf. I consider that as the one
working solution based on free software right now.
