They are in the CVS now ("libs/mpl/doc/src").

1. Get a patched Docutils snapshot from

2. Unzip, go inside "docutils-06-nov-04" directory and do
   "python install".
3. Go to "libs/mpl/doc/src/refmanual" and do the following:

      python ..../docutils-06-nov-04/tools/ -g -t refmanual.gen
   The first command enumerates all .rst files in the directory,
   producing "refmanual.gen". The second one takes care of the
   actual HTML generation (which is going to take some time).
4. Copy "libs/mpl/doc/style.css" into "refmanual.html"'s directory

5. Enjoy freshly generated docs :).

6. To reflect changes in .rst sources, repeat step 3 as needed.
