Re: Debian wiki and DocBook output?

Hi Paul,

thanks for making us aware of this issue!

It's essential as it's used to create the source for xml files for the 
debian-edu-doc package (which are then translated with .po files and turned 
into pdf+html versions).

(And debian-edu-doc contains the central Debian Edu documentation and well, 
documentation is essential.)

there are at least some patches and proposals there...

As ikiwiki also supports translations and more importantly docbook xml output, 
I'm fine with this plan. (=I'd be willing to do the work on the 
debian-edu-doc side for this migration :)
