Subject Re: [VOTE] Migrating XML Graphics Project to ASF-CMS from Apache Forrest
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2012 10:21:20 GMT
Hi All,

Just an update after my suggestion that we could include Twitter Bootstrap,
both Clay and I have asked site-dev@ for assistance as in order to properly
format use that library, we need to make changes in the way the mark-down
is converted into HTML. Site-dev haven't responded to our queries, but
they're a busy bunch so hopefully they'll get round to it. I did a bit of
research, and we're not the only ones trying to do this (format the HTML
created by the mark-down).

Anyway, just thought I'd give a status update. But as for the vote, +1 from
me.

Thanks

Mehdi
