1 Several of these questions were already answered in the #gentoo-infra
2 chat that predated the mailing list discussion; I repeat the details
3 here because it dispels the other concerns.

11 Is Trang still actively maintained by upstream? Last release looks like
12 2009? It also cannot convert FROM XML-Schema, only TO XML-Schema.
13 There is also MSV, dev-java/msv, with a last release in 2013.

20 All you need is xsltproc, which is part of libxslt/libxml.
22 XSL transform: XSD -> RNG
25 XSL Transform: XSD -> DTD
28 These two are very similar, differing only in a comment block warning
29 that some RNG/XML-Schema constraints cannot be represented in DTD.
31 Both Trang and MSV are also Java, whereas the XSLT transforms are usable
32 without Java.
