[Bug 1869814] Re: ubuntu-docs build failure - possible solution


This bug was fixed in the package ubuntu-docs - 20.04.1

ubuntu-docs (20.04.1) focal; urgency=medium

  * scripts/update-translations.sh:
    - Handle tarballs also from the package
  * Bump version to 20.04 / focal
  * debian/control.in, debian/control:
    - Replace Vcs-Bzr with Vcs-Git
    - Bump Standards-Version to 4.5.0
  * New languages: af, ckb
  * Translations from Launchpad:
    - Syntactically incorrect Chinese translations of two strings were
      corrected before this translation update, which works around the
      focal build failure as described in LP: #1869814.

Bug description:
  ubuntu-docs failed to build during the second Focal Fossa test


  It was itstool which failed to generate the localized zh_CN pages. If
  dropping zh_CN from ubuntu-help/Makefile.am, ubuntu-docs builds. But
  excluding the Chinese pages is apparently not an acceptable solution.

  The itstool package in focal {build-,}depends on python3. I built
  itstool in a PPA with python2 instead, and in that PPA ubuntu-docs
  built fine without modifications:


  So the root cause seems to lie neither in ubuntu-docs nor itstool. I
  would suspect that python3-libxml2 is buggy, but since itstool was
  built against python2 in eoan, it's hard to tell if it's a regression.

  Would building itstool against python2 be an acceptable workaround in
