Subject Re: project specific changes for plugins
Date Thu, 20 Jan 2005 17:36:32 GMT
Our changes are pretty general:
   *sDocBook*           *forrest-document*
   <example>        --> <note label="Example">
   <note role="A">  --> <note class="A">
   <anchor> commented out (it's not a sDocBook tag),
      actually don't know the reason why we removed it.

Don't know if there was more ... the pretty-printer
did a good job and now diff's output is unusable :-(

We'll have to deliver a complete forrest-project
to one of our customers and I would really like
to keep the changes out of forrest.

And for experimenting in a multi-user setting (one
forrest, multiple authors in different projects) it
seems wise not to mess with forrest.

Would be great to contribute to DocBook-support,
though ;-)
