Subject [VOTE] Use Forrest to build Cocoon docs
Date Sun, 27 Oct 2002 22:56:36 GMT

It's time we move the Cocoon docs to Forrest.

There is still a problem to solve though.
How are we going to generate the documentation?

Currently Cocoon uses itself to generate the documentation, but now we 
want to use Forrest, which has an indipendent distribution.

I would propose that we remove the current "docs" target from Cocoon 
altogether, and use the Forrest distro for it.

This way we move the concern of the docs system to Forrest and don't 
have to cut-n-paste and keep in synch the Forrest build system with the 
Cocoon one.

The "docs" target in Cocoon will thus become just a call to the Forrest 
build process, and the docs will be included in the distributions 
generated statically.

I think this will make things simpler to manage and update.

What do you think?
