I checked the current blends/doc. In order to convert the current format to xml I used docbook5-xml. I just commited the some first converted pages. The files are under:
To test the files I did:
xmlto html debian-blends.en.xml
Of course the output needs to be customized: section enumerations, no page break for each section, navigation etc. I need to investigate more for these cause its my first time dealing with sgml/xml documentation. I also tried with xsltproc (for example add an option for section enumeration from cmd, also its easier cause it dumps all pages into a single html file)
xsltproc -o index.html --stringparam section.autolabel 1 /usr/share/xml/docbook/stylesheet/docbook-xsl/html/docbook.xsl debian-blends.en.xml
Can you check the files, is this what we need? If yes I will convert the rest of the blends-doc pages in new format and then customize the xls options in order to produce an output same as the the current debian-sgml files.
