Re: Proposal for Implementing a Docbook Editor

I am a final year undergraduate student from India and I plan to apply
for Google Summer of Code. I would like to implement a Docbook editor.
I discussed this idea with Mr. Yaakov Nemoy (cc'ed in this mail) who
has agreed and is guiding me through the process.

The Docbook editor will make it easy to write documentation through a
wysiwyg interface. Since Docbook has a great collection of XSLs[1] it
will be easy to convert it to HTML and write a web based editor.

Speaking as a lurker on this list who in real life is trying to wrap her head around the complexity of formalizing  a docs project in an open source project... I personally think this feels a real need. Satya, there is also a docbook-apps list where you might get additional feedback on this idea. I'm working on a proof of concept for Docbook within our project, and there is a hurdle for Docbook production with respect to contributions from nontechnical volunteers (and even to some extent the more technical participants) that an editor "in the cloud" could significantly help address.
