I'm evaluating ant-docbook at the moment and this seems to be all I need 
for my purposes; at least at the moment. For those who are interested 
have a look at http://pub.admc.com/howtos/ant-docbook-howto/

I wasn't aware of Publican and will give it a try although I'm not using 
Fedora (does not run too well on my notebook) but there shouldn't be too 
much magic involved in using it on Karmic. Thanks for the tip anyway :).
