I found out recently that some of the document info attributes are
only valid for the 'library' documentation type. So I put in an error
if they were used, but then I realised that it broke some of the
documentation, so I changed it to a warning (this was about a month
ago). I suspect that you built quickbook between those changes. If
you're using a prebuilt quickbook, you should build it from a released
version, since that will be better tested.

Types other than library are docbook document types. You can read
about them in the docbook documentation.

I wouldn't bother with fop, it doesn't produce very good results.
We've have better luck with xep, The setup script is problematic, it
breaks quite frequently. I've been thinking about deleting it or
cutting it down to something simpler. The instructions I linked to
earlier would setup quickbook without using that script.
