Gnome Documentation System

Just started hacking on my attempt to implement some sort of more modern documentation system for the gnome user guide.

So far this involves a few components; a modified version of moinmoin 1.5, a hacked version of yelp with xml-rpc support, and some python scripts.

Basically the idea is that moinmoin now supports docbook generation and has a nice xml-rpc interface. So the idea is that periodically the wiki version of the gnome-user-guide is crawled and docbook is generated. Also, yelp can fetch the latest version of the documentation from the wiki and display it.

A bit of work to go but a nice project covering lots of disiplines
