> I thought the concensus was to work in ISBN and gjb would merge those changes to HEAD? Many of the changes you are doing have already occurred in ISBN. We started the work in ISBN so that the doc slush would not slow down changes to the book.
I agree that it was a good choice that time but the two-way merges add 
quite much overhead. When the branch was created, we still didn't have a 
real XML toolchain. But now we have it so DocBook profiling is possible. 
In this way, we can work with a single source and mark up print-only and 
online-only sections. We can also mark up version-specific text so there 
is no need to maintain two different development lines.
