Dear All,

It would seem like now would be a good time to contribute toolset
documentation to BBv2. It was intending at least to make a start with the

With this in mind I had a quick look at the build/v2/doc directory and found
that there is both the ordinary HTML documentation and also Boostbook in
source. From the CVS commits it looks like both are fairly up to date.

Should new toolset documentation be in Boostbook source format?

While setting up Boostbook I stumbled across a bug. The 'doc/catalog.xml' file
is not overwritten once it has already been created. Therefore changing DTD
XSL or directory location specification in user-config (or environment
variables) is ineffective once bjam has been run once.
