Subject Simplified DOCBOOK Support - WAS: New Maven Plugins available ...
Date Mon, 16 Dec 2002 13:58:00 GMT
Yeap - I did know but at my first look the transformation (XSL?!)  
was invalid, the author seemed to have had a bad day and the PDF 
generation from XDOC is still broken in MAVEN B7 (see below).

No offence meant to anybody on this planet ... I also have a few bad 
days a week looking at my source code and the mirror.

The principal problem is the loss of information ... Simplified 
DOCBOOK is much richer than XDOC and I simply had to convert a 
handful of existing SDOCBOOK documents. Furthermore it provides 
additional output formats such as HTML Help and JavaDoc (which I 
haven't integrated at the moment)

IMHO the question remains if a translation to XDOC is beneficial ... 
any opionions out there ?! 

Having said this I would love to have the PDF plugin working and I 
can provide some sample documents, a little FO know-how but I have no 
ideas of SDCOBOOK. 

So we could merge the plugins if it makes sense ....
