Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Posting examples on the wiki


I've had the same experience myself (combing through the list archives),
  and I've considered starting such a page on the wiki (see the
docbook-apps thread "customization layer for DocBook 5.0: The Transition
Guide") using a cookbook-style approach. Concrete examples are a great
way to learn.

I sort of dropped the ball--lots of things going on here at work--but
let's do it! I think others are interested too (Dick Hamilton, etc). If
you have access, Peter, go ahead and create a new topic page on the
wiki. What should it be called? DocBookCustomizations might work, but
it's sort of system-centered. Maybe DocBookCookbook ?
