strictTaskbodyConstraintMod.xsd refers to taskMod.xsd unversioned

See original GitHub issue

Expected Behavior

The reference to taskMod.xsd should be versioned as with all other references in the schema files.

Actual Behavior

It references taskMod.xsd without version qualifier and it causes problems when running transformations that are based on versioned schema references with version tied to 1.2 The following command shows pretty well how strictTaskbodyConstraintMod.xsd is different from all other files:

find src/main/plugins/org.oasis-open.dita.v1_2/ -name *.xsd | xargs grep "redefine schemaLocation"

Possible Solution

change schema reference from

<xs:redefine schemaLocation="urn:oasis:names:tc:dita:xsd:taskMod.xsd">


<xs:redefine schemaLocation="urn:oasis:names:tc:dita:xsd:taskMod.xsd:1.2">

Steps to Reproduce

Run a transformation on a map that contains a task with xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:oasis:names:tc:dita:xsd:task.xsd:1.2".

Copy of the error message, log file or stack trace

The relevant log output line is:

src-resolve: Cannot resolve the name 'tasktroubleshooting' to a(n) 'group' component.

Fixed with #2878

The 1.2 was/is an SVN repository. I can bring it up at the next TC meeting. Not sure what’s the state of the repository or the tools to build the package way back when.
