Since I didn't get any answers on my previous post, I hereby reiterate
I wrote a quickbook toolset to generate boostbook documentation from
quickbook sources. The toolset is attached to the original post. I would
like to propose the addition of the toolset to BB v2, under the tools
directory. Is this ok?
And a question about the boostbook toolset...
