Subject Re: Using princexml.com converter tool in ASF projects (and publishing the artifacts)
Date Tue, 13 Oct 2009 13:01:33 GMT
Just another thing.
We don't necesseraly need to install prince xml on our build server,
we can easily make this part of the build optional.
This would be to the release manager to ensure he has installed
princexml on its own computer before doing the release so that the
manual is correctly generated.
