[3:08pm] chuck: so adding something like
[3:08pm] chuck:
[3:08pm] chuck: plus the anchor tags for all the other apis

I'd also request anchor tags for each heading that is a Compute extension.

I'd like to work on this issue after I could collect some inputs.

I'm able to come up with two ways to resolve this issue:
1) Generate Table of Content. But the TOC generation depends on the XSL used in the maven plugin.
2) We are able to manually add elements <link> at the top of this DocBook to create quick links to specific sections.

I personally prefer the second choice, although the <link> elements need to be managed manually. The maven plugin is out of the range of OpenStack. Policies are complex.

Do you have preference? Do you have better suggestions? Feel free to purpose. Thank you in advance.

Hi Daisy,
Sorry I didn't see this until now! Are you still interested in working on this? My preference is for a generated table of contents so when new APIs are added we don't have manual work to do.

Let me know your thoughts.

Hi, Anne

As I know, the TOC generation depends on the XSL used in the maven plugin. Are there any other ways to add a TOC at the top of a document ?

Hi, Anne

I verified. The only way to add a TOC is to update the XSL document used when HTML is generating. May you consultant with David to get his suggestion?

Attachment shows a PDF mockup of a "Jump to" navigation menu that would jump to the major H1 headings in the page, one for each API. This is a UI element to be added, but the bug also requests that the URL be a shortened one just the heading, such as
