Hello everybody,

I have a project, looking for a developer to take it on.

Short description is: completing the Wikibook--> Docbook transform … which I believe is about 75% complete, but somewhat out of date.

Longer description: 

* is an online book production tool, built on WordPress, and Wikipublisher.
* We output EPUB, and a typeset PDF (and some XML)
* The Typeset PDF is generated using Wikipublisher …in the following way: 
- we generate XHTML
- which we transoform into Wikibook.XML
- The Wikibook.xml is then fed into wikipublisher to generate the PDF

So, PressBooks produces valid Wikibook.xml …

But we would also like to produce DocBook.

The Wikibook.xml-->DocBook transform is about 75% build, but slightly out of date. We'd like to:

a) update & complete the transform script so that it outputs valid DocBook.

Interested in hearing more?
