I would rather wait until c2 is done, I would rather not use another
format. I am used to the tags of Anakia, but I fully agree with using
standard DocBook tags. I would rather use DocBook tags myself anyway. This
is what c2 will accept, yes? If so I would rather go that route. Stylebook
is in the past for me and I don't want to use it again.

I think that using DocBook as the input is very wise, and I would like
to get Anakia using DocBook as there are so many tools for DocBook than
at least two apache projects would be using the same format. Geir has
wanted to do this for a while but no time. But if we all used DocBook
than it doesn't really matter what produces the final output. xml.apache.org
can eat its own dogfood, and jakarta.apache.org can do the same.

I would be happy to try c2 using DocBook.
