In fact we use "make postgres.xml" to get a single XML, which we translate.
We convert it to .po using xml2po (with some modifications), and then convert it back to xml (and then to sgml files with our custom script). So we have not changed sgml to xml files, and if it's more appropriate than having a single large XML, then we will propose a procedure to perform such conversion (that will result in corresponding mega patch).

Best regards,
Alexander Lakhin

It seems there's no figures/diagrams in our docs. I vaguely recall that

I don't know the reason, but it's shame, we are still in sgml !

We already do our translations (as others) in xml using custom scripting.
xml provides us better integration with available tools and ability to
insert graphics. Last time we asked in -docs about moving to xml and
Alexander demonstrated acceptable speed of xml build, but there were no
reply from Peter, who is (?) responsible for our documentation
infrastructure. Probably, we should just created a patch and submit to
commitfest.  You can check this thread
Well, there are some PostgreSQL doc translation projects are running
including translation for Japanese, which I am working on.

If we are going to change the manual format and/or the build system, I
need to confirm it does work for Japanese as well. In theory because
the Japanese translation project uses UTF-8, there should be no
problem as far as the whole build system works for UTF-8. But I want
to confirm first...

BTW, are you going to propose a mega patch which changes all the sgml
files to xml files?
