Thanks for your help, I'll request packages like xmlstarlet.
For docbook-utils-pdf, I don't understand why redhat did drop it, and I wonder how can
EPEL publish only the missing part without breakage if redhat updates the 1st half.
Anyway, I'll also request it. Aside that, I'll try to learn and understand how I
can migrate my docbook sgml files to more modern techno.
For perl-QT, Fedora-30 still ships it: https://pkgs.org/download/perl-Qt
I know it's not well maintained.
In fact, I'm in the process of removing all scripting language like perl, python and

repository. Any package appears there must be actively requested and packaged.
redhat dropped docbook-utils-pdf for example (while keeping

Either buy a RHEL subscription and report a request to Red Hat, or ask EPEL
packagers to package docbook-utils-pdf from the docbook-utils RHEL sources.
EPEL-8 has dropped xmlstarlet,
File a request to Fedora Bugzilla for adding it.
perl-Qt is deader than a dead horse. It requires other libraries that
cannot be even built and many distributions including Fedora and Debian
removed it. Please use a different GUI toolkit.
