Description From 2005-11-15 16:39:32
The implementation of xml schema in the version of libxml doesn't handle
very well. We've implemented some parts as needed, but in the meantime, libxml
has improved quite a bit. We should update libxml to a more current patch
release and replace our fixes with those in the official releases for easier
maintenance and higher quality.

Currently, globus-wsrf-cgen generates bad bindings for the types in the MDS
Aggregator schemas because of parsing problems.

I've started working on merging the libxml2 2.6.22 release into the vendor
branch in CVS. Conflicts occurred in the schemas parsing and the configure/build
system mostly.

The data structures for parsed schemas have changed a bit in the newer versions
of libxml2. This is causing some problems generating bindings from the templates.

I've backed out of this update for now. It was causing too many problems with
the type generation code. I fixed the original bug which was causing me to want
this update to be done.
