Any help is appreciated. Some packages are spread over the Debian
community (like jing/trang) and some are collected under the hat of the
Debian XML/SGML group:

http://git.debian.org/ (debian-xml-sgml/...)

There are also some orphaned docbook* packages. If you are interested in
XML/SGML please check, which packages might be of interest for you or
where you can/want to help. Some topics coming to my mind:

- packaging RELAX NG and W3C schema support (I started relax-ng)
- rewriting update-(sgml|xml)catalog (sgml-base, xml-core)
- docbook-utils needs a lot of love (SGML-related)
- the policies need to be updated and adjusted (especially after
rewriting xml-core/sgml-base)
- of course: bug fixing/tracking

So if you are interested, please don't hesitate to join packaging effort
of XML/SGML related packages.

Regards, Daniel
