Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Very basic svn and DocBook question

You'd check in the XML, as the HTML can always be re-generated from  
the XML sources.

The simplest approach is to use a transformation script, or, better  
yet, a Makefile, to run the transformation. Check that into svn as  
well, so you'll always know how your sources were processed at a  
particular revision of your svn repository.
