Welcome back, Adam!

I'm still lurking around, but I probably would need help setting up
the build framework etc.  Osamu may be able to help with that.

ATM d-i is not buildable on powerpc, which I would need to get started.

OTOH Osamu imported the progeny manual into debiandoc, and that may
make a good template for the install manual, at least of the GUI
installer we will eventually have. We might want to split the manual
up into GUI and non-GUI pieces, to make it simpler for the GUI people.
The GUI portion should have screenshots, which is handled awkwardly 
with debiandoc - I think that might really make XML look attractive.
