Comment 2 for bug 1006650

Vladimir,

Thanks for your reply - I am already aware of dotepub, actually I mentioned
it in the request.

I am actually looking for an intelligent way of linking dotepub with
calibre seamlessly. I currently download many articles (say 50 to 100 per
week) and it is time consuming to convert them and add them to calibre by
hand, a tool to join dotepub and calibre would be wonderful.

And since calibre is already quite good at making things simple with
e-books I thought this would be a good fit.

Anyway I'll see if someone else comes up with something better soon.

Dom
