  Description     : web site builder using ReST as basic content format

Packages are in preparation, but some issues have to be resolved
with upstream first regarding the use of the pythonutils module
collection, which I refuse to package up as is because the name's
just too broad.

If everything goes well, this will be (among) the first package(s)
to use ~ in the version. Yay! :)

Here's the long description.

 rest2web is a simple tool that lets you build your website from a single
 template (or as many as you want), and keep the contents in ReStructured Text
 (docutils; you can still keep pages in HTML if needed).
 It can also aid in having multiple translations of your site (i18n) and
 provides a host of other features:
 * Automatically builds index pages and navigation links (sidebars and
 * Embedded code in templates for unlimited expressiveness.
 * Flexible macro system.
 * Uses relative links, so sites can be viewed from the filesystem.
 * Unicode internally - so you don't have to be.
 * Includes features for multiple translations of sites.
 * Built-in gallery creator plugin.
 * The basic system is very easy to use.
 * Lots of powerful (optional) features.
 Adding new pages is as easy as dropping a text file into the right folder.
 rest2web builds the new page and adds a link to it in the index (optionally
 with a description as well). Removing a page is just as easy. Delete the
 file, and when you run rest2web again it removes the entry.
 Because rest2web generates sites using relative paths, the results can be
 viewed from the filesystem. This means that it is an effective way of
 bundling documentation.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
