Hi Sanjaya,

Also, please donít feel limited to the ideas posted. As you explore the DocBook tools and the features it has and doesnít you may come up with your own idea for a project. According to Google, those are often the most successful.

Hi Kasun,
††† Thank you very much for your reply.I am following the "DocBook: The Definitive Guide"† and haven't† yet touched the "DocBook XSL: The Complete Guide".DocBook community seems to be very friendly and helpful and thus I am encouraged.Again thank you for sharing your ideas with me.

Hi Sanjaya,

It's nice to see that you are interested in DocBook.†

As a start to DocBook, you may refer the following two great books "DocBook: The Definitive Guide" and "DocBook XSL: The Complete Guide" †[1] [2]. The first book covers the DocBook schema and is a good reference book. The second book covers almost all the things you need to know about DocBook XSL styling.†I think you will need these two books a lot for this project! :)

Further, I hope you went through this year's GSoC ideas list and the last year's ideas list? [3] [4] Some of the last year's ideas were already implemented (4 successful project IIRC!), and I'm not sure whether those ideas will be eligible for this year. Probably they will!

Thank you very much,
