Attached is a schema. changelog.xml does not validate because, there's a 
'bugno' attribute with the content 
and the text "Don't stop moving the KalziumTip if the mouse hovers it." 
appears between two product elements. To me it seems like that should simply 
not validate.

Comments welcome. Anyone is free to develop it further/claim maintainership.

Validate with `xmllint --noout --schema kdeChangelog.xsd changelog.xml`.

Btw, some more comments about the stylesheet:

* Some people find "../" more readable than "ancestor::"(especially unix 
geeks). That is, 'select="ancestor::product/@name"' would become 

* 'select=".//element"' is equivalent to 'select="//element". Doesn't make a 
big difference.

* I would normalize the descriptions, in order to reduce file size and make it 
load faster(do it at transform time, instead of having the browser do it). 
That is, instead of apply-templates in template 'bugfix', do <xsl:value-of
