That's a very reasonable intent and probably right in time to not beeing
hit by the real release date and have to do things in a rush.

Yes, we definitely should do so.  I also try to point out that DebiChem
and Debian GIS now are using the Blends techniques and I will care for
the according sections (and hope it will not blur the document to much).

IMHO the "snippets and harvest" method would make the most effort for you
and thus I would not suggest this.  If you volunteer to transform Wiki to
docbook I think Wiki is fine.  Alternatively we might use


to edit the docbook file but that's a matter of taste and you might decide

Kind regards
