No. The XSLT template tries to load the schema from two locations: local
schema dir and $(OUTDIR)/registry/schema . While the "failed to load
external entity" warning means that the former one does not exist (as
you correctly discovered), it does not mean it is a bug. It is really a
limitation of XSLT, that only allows to load a file, not to test for the
existence of a file. (To be honest, this also means that we are probably
misusing XSLT for something it was not meant for, but that is nothing
new, is it?) Cf. officecfg/util/schema_val.xsl line 129. The template
itself is called from solenv/gbuild/ .
