Hi Norman

My name is Hans Bakker and member of the Apache OFBiz PRC and a
committer. We appreciate your Docbook initiative very much and would
like to include the docbook files (xsl,xsd,dtd etc) within the Apache
OFBiz content manager. The system has the Apache v2.0 license.

It will be copied unchanged and will be used from within the OFBiz erp
system to create docbook documents which can be converted to html, pdf
internally. We would like to start with V5.0

Is there any objections in doing so?

Please let us know.

Thank you for this excellent piece of software.

The answer i got back was:  (Tue, 25 Aug 2009 07:27:51 -0400 (18:27 ICT))
