 If you don't want to waste time do  it if the release 7.5 will at least
 in beta,  preferably in  messages freeze state  and nobody  will modify
 PostgreSQL messages.

 Peter E. works on XML docbook version of docs. I don't know if he wants
 to move  directly to XML or  uses on the  fly conversion to XML  by osx
 (sgml2xml). This conversion you try use  by "make testxml" stuff in the
 doc/src/sgml/Makefile. I  tested it  and it  works --  but for  example
 conversion  from XML  to PDF  by "fop"  failed, but  it's might  be fop
 Peter, what's your planns?
