Hi all!

Since I didn't get any answers on my previous post, I hereby reiterate
my questions.

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...

Thank you for your time,

Best regards,
