I am interested in translation and infrastructural work of dragonfly's
documentation and have several patches for them personally, but
I think switching the docs to a Wiki or the like is problematic
for languages other than English and output formats other than HTML.
So while it is not so easy to handle XML/SGML docs and its build
infrastructure as you pointed out, it is worth sticking to such
portable and standardized way.
BTW, is there anything I can do to help you? I can send the patches
if it would not be too much trouble...
