I have familiarized myself a bit with svn and Docbook does not really pose a
problem, it's very similar to XHTML. However, I figured it would be better
for me to work on Feisty documentation when I actually *have* Feisty :P
I plan to upgrade as soon as I can burn it onto a CD, which will probably be
tomorrow-evening. This weekend I'll be at my father's place, so there won't
be much I can do then, but hopefully after the weekend. If I'm not too busy
with the other 3 projects I've got running at the moment...
