I think writing the docbook and generating the man- and info-pages would be the
best way. I donīt know any tools for that, but a quick googling gave me some
hits [1-3]. But IMHO these tools can not be included in Forrest, so writing a
stylesheet for generating the man-pages from doc-v12 (donīt know the docbook
support in Forrest) would be the cleaner way...
docbook-to-man - convert DocBook SGML into roff -man macros
docbook to man page converter
The jw shell script allows to convert a DocBook file ... other formats ...
