Yes some old ones, probably not needed.

Some recent ones which are probably still used

Some still needed. Thanks for doing
"New conversion tools (docv12 + docv13 => docv20)"

'svn log docv20todocv13.xsl' reveals that they were part
of issues FOR-174 which might provide some clues. When you
find out, we should patch the head of those *.xsl with
a brief comment as to purpose.

Add missing files from revision 23140.

I am confused, please explain.

You also say above "want to convert from docv12todocv20".
I wonder if a "docv1todocv20" would handle v1.3 and v1.2

The other issue is how these tools would get used.
In the past we have used an Ant build task to do
batch conversions of xdocs and store the resulting
set of documents into a build directory. This was
developed early in Forrest to transform the Cocoon
documentation to upgraded DTDs.

I have a feeling that we left that old work in the
CVS Attic of the old "xml-forrest" CVS. Searching
the mail archives would find it. Diana Shannon
was the main driver. One thread is:
