when I recently started adding documentation for replication and
config in DIT features I really
felt that confluence is not the best tool to use cause too much
attention is needed to writing the
confluence presentation macros, well they are finite but still I see
it as taking too much time.
May be we should start considering some authoring toolkit like docbook.

StefanZ I have seen your sandbox project, may be we should resuscitate
it and instead of moving confluence
spaces we should push all of that to this docbook format which can be
easily versioned.

what do others think?

P.S:- I for one really want to just write the content and take the
help of experts for presentation details
        and just include those style sheets
