Subject Re: [all] xdoc vs. apt
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2012 13:21:54 GMT
I did the whole Flume web site in Sphinx -   It works great for documentation
but isn't really designed to build a web site - although you can.  

The Maven plugin has a few gotchas at the moment: 
1 - it has a bug that causes it to use a lot of memory on multi-module builds 
2. It can't effectively render PDFs (you can manually do this with rst2pdf).
