Are there any good DTD- or schema-aware XML editors out there? I have
not found one. I use vim.
What "end" makes sure the profile is valid? I would think back-end
daemon. Are there mechanism to go a "test" run before actual run to see
if there are any errors? I was thinking for things like copy. Make
sure that the files asked for are present and the checksums are valid
before actually running the build.
