[Pkg-xen-devel] Bug#599434: xen-utils-4.0: create.dtd is missing

Package: xen-utils-4.0
Version: 4.0.1-1

The Python code in /usr/lib/xen-4.0/lib/python/xen/xm/xenapi_create.py 
tries to validate an XML configuration against a missing "create.dtd"
DTD file.
The code expects at SHAREDIR/xen/create.dtd (SHAREDIR is "/usr/share" 
according to /usr/lib/xen-4.0/lib/python/xen/util/path.py).
In the Xen source distribution the missing file can be found at 

Even though xenapi_create.py is broken right now anyways (due to 
missing python-xml in squeeze/sid additionally with a missing 
dependency on it)
I believe the file should be included in future uploads of 
xen-utils-4.0 (or another xen-* package).
