Hi Alejandro,

Great. It looks like there are a lot of people who want to contribute. Im
in the progress of posting my first toc written in Docbook.
I use the Borges framework which is used by the folks at mandrake.

The framework is very modulair. I also have definied the entity documents
and modules so when it's finished we could put it in a CVS and every
section has it's own xml file.
Sections can be added very easily.
However we have some problems with the make files I use, they don't work
on BSD we have to fix it someway.

When it's finished I'll post it here. May be some docbook experts
can check out?

I'll incorperate your additions also. The master toc is just a
start point.

I'll hope we soon can set up a CVS rep. for the XML docbook files so
everybody can start documenting on it in a structured way ;-)

Take Care,

documentation part that you can see in gnometutorial.
