#1 Showlabels 1.9 breaks bibitem 4 days ago

Comment by ~nxg on ~nxg/showlabels

I've been able to reproduce this, and I think I can see where the problem was introduced, between v1.8 and 1.9.

Ticket created by ~nxg on ~nxg/showlabels

it seems that in the latest release of the showlabels package the command \showlabels{bibitem} breaks the output of bibliographic tags containing accented symbols, see MWE attached, and the difference commenting out \showlabels{bibitem} makes.

(From Michael Levitin, by email to Norman)

MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{showlabels}
\showlabels{bibitem}
\usepackage[colorlinks,allcolors=blue]{hyperref}
\begin{document}

We will use \cite{Pol54}

\begin{thebibliography}{999999}
\bibitem[P{\'o}lya]{Pol54} G. P\'{o}lya, \emph{Mathematics and plausible reasoning}, in two volumes, Princeton University Press, Princeton, N. J., 1954.
\end{thebibliography}
\end{document}

#3 Include empty-string as a valid units string 3 months ago

Ticket created by ~nxg on ~nxg/unity

The VOUnits document says 'An empty unit string positively indicates that the corresponding quantity is dimensionless. Since an empty string does not conform to the grammars below, this also must be checked for before unit-parsing starts.'

It might be better to add a special case of 'empty string' to the VOUnits grammar. However this would require coordination with that specification document (cf spec and github)

#2 FITS recommends 'a' for year, not 'yr' 3 months ago

Ticket created by ~nxg on ~nxg/unity

Arnold Rots has noted that the VOUnits document says that 'yr' is the FITS-preferred unit for year, but that it should instead be 'a'. See Table 34 of the FITS paper.

This is an error in the VOUnits document, but it's reflected in this library, so should be fixed in both places.

#1 Fix namespace URIs to be not bitbucket 3 months ago

#1 Fix namespace URIs to be not bitbucket 3 months ago

Ticket created by ~nxg on ~nxg/unity

Somewhat unfortunately, the namespace URIs for the Unity subjects are http://bitbucket.org/nxg/unity/ns/unit#, http://bitbucket.org/nxg/unity/ns/syntax# and http://bitbucket.org/nxg/unity/ns/schema# (the library was at one time hosted at bitbucket, but the repository has been migrated away). Although these are of course somewhat arbitrary, it is undesirable that they are still at bitbucket. It would be good to change these, but that probably can't happen before some future version of the software.

Downgrading to minor enhancement

Comment by ~nxg on ~nxg/versonotes

On investigation, this has turned out to be somewhat more intricate than I expected, especially in parallel with the recto changes of issue #1.

While this functionality would be nice, I suppose, it's not obvious to me that it's worth the maintenance effort, and so I'm tempted to downgrade its priority.
