I'm currently writing a make-snippet to be included into debian/rules
(similar to dpatch.make) to allow easier processing and inclusion of
manpage XML sources into Debian packages. If you are interested in the
results, contact me (it is not yet in the Debian XML/SGML group's CVS
repository). I'm open for any suggestions (e.g. how to enable support
for both, DocBook XML and SGML - manpage.xml, manpage.sgml, foo.1.xml,
foo.1.<lang>.xml and similar). ATM the snippet support DocBook XML and
xmlto and xsltproc (docbook2x-man will be supported soon, after having a
feature like the one enabled with man.output.lang.in.name.enabled).

Regards, Daniel
