Sounds great.

I think it would be worth it.

I haven't got any experience of xdoclet, apart from watching it in action,
but I think this is the way to go.

My plan for docs is that
1/ we have the website as a seperate "component" managed independantly
2/ the release manager is responsible for also building docs for the
release version (no need for this to involve more than an extra commit of
the generated docs)
3/ docs will be published under version label directories so that we can
have multiple doc sets live at once, say "stable" and "head"
4/ historic docs would still be available in downloads or split downloads
into src, bin , & doc

This means that xdoclet would be a great way of documenting mailets &
matchers, but also means that we would separate website from product docs
so that we could move towards a "manual" style rather than a web-site
style, for the product docs. I think Ant is a good example of what I'm

We might even find it worthwhile using xdoclet for documenting more
components which implement public interfaces, such as processor, mail
repository, and protocol handler.
