Sean Busbey commented on ACCUMULO-2578:
---------------------------------------

It would be nice if we could just use Markdown for everything.

Anyone know of an easy way to convert markdown to PDF?

> LaTeX is bulky, it's results are not easily viewed with a text editor, and it's not easy
to convert to HTML for display on the project website.
> We should migrate away from LaTeX and find a format that satisfies these things, making
it easier to consolidate and organize the available documentation.
> Preferably, the solution to this should not require platform-specific build tools (like
pdflatex and LaTeX styles are currently required). Ideally, the solution should be able to
build with Java/Maven plugin without any such extra tools (except what Maven downloads as
dependencies of the plugin).
