That'll work.

that you wanted to restructure the docs for this project. Perhaps you want to work on it,
or outline what you had in mind?

we can work on improving CSS, etc.

and in the past you said that you did not want to just copy it over but to rearrange it into
more helpful structures. Moving stuff into docbook takes a bit of effort, so any structure
changes should be done first.

Yes, the new docbook stuff is about rearranging and a substantial rewrite of the wiki docs.
It is still unfinished, and I'd rather we do not just move the old wikidocs to it. That would
defeat the purpose of the "modernizing" effort done so far.

At the same time I think it is in a shape good enough to be published as "master" 3.1 (and
3.2) documentation set on the site, while I am slowly rewriting the remaining chapters. It
should be much more useful to 3.1 users then just cloning the old 3.0 wiki docs (which is
what we essentially have on the current site). And publishing would require HTML (and PDF)
templates cleanup.
