As I just replied to PeterE, I was waiting for 7.1 to be out before
rewriting the docs from scratch. I was waiting because of time restraints
and I didn't want to mess up the exiting docs, especially as I knew you
needed time before release with the docs static.
What I'm working on for the jdbc site is a set of API docs explaining the
PostgreSQL specific extensions, and a set of tutorials. The tutorials range
from the basic stuff (replacing the examples in the source), to writing
Servlets with PostgreSQL, EJB's, Corba etc.
Now a Javadoc->DocBook converter should be easy. In fact you can get
javadoc to do it for you using the Doclet API. Should be real easy to do.
