Bug#730240: doc-base: request for epub format support
It would be nice if doc-base could support the epub format
for doc-base documents.
The similar bug for the OpenDocument Text format is found at:
http://bugs.debian.org/477306 (from A.D. 2008)
but there have been no action over 5 years.
Debian doc-base Manual section 184.108.40.206 (Format sections) needs update
Addressing fundamental program design issues such as listing translation
documents together to make it easy to see and providing localized
explanation texts are difficult but adding support for newer popular
format entries should not be too hard. It's about time we take care
I also think useless entry for SGML should be marked deprecated.
