dbxml2rst package

Normally XML tools are used to convert DocBook XML, e.g. XSL Style-sheets to convert DocBook XML into various formats (examples: http://docbook.sourceforge.net/release/xsl/current). I haven’t found any XSL Template to convert DocBook to reST, and I’am not interested in developing one. Thats why I compiled these small dbxml2rst toolbox, which uses existing tools and hacked a bit around them. The dbxml2rst uses the pandoc converter and implements some XML-filters, where pandoc fails, e.g. cross references in a multi-part DocBook document.

The migration of DocBook-XML is a working process and a task which is mostly done by developers, not end users. This in mind, the dbxml2rst tools are not ready to go for every one. The dbxml2rst toolbox is useful for DocBook to reST migration, it don’t attempt to be a converter for a daily usage.
