Bug Description

Is it possible to add code compilation guide in epub format?
Thanks.

Makefile:
"
......
serverguide-epub:

        if [ $(LN) != "C" ]; then \
                ./scripts/translate.sh -d serverguide -l $(LN); \
        fi
        if find serverguide/$(LN) -name "*.xml"; then \
                mkdir -p build/serverguide/$(LN); \
                dbtoepub serverguide/$(LN)/serverguide.xml; \
                mv serverguide.epub build/serverguide/$(LN); \
        fi

Could you tell us why you want it? On our separate e-mail thread, you mentioned a "blueprint", maybe give us that or a link.

I do not even have a program called "dbtoepub", so that build wouldn't currently work for me.

My worry is that it would add a 3rd type of build to check for the serverguide. I always check both the html build and the PDF build, but I think many, if not most, only check the HTML.

Anyway, I am not the authority here, and I defer to others.

I'm sorry that is not written to you.

The output is epub file, which is better suited for reading on electronic readers (Barnes&Noble, Amazon Kindle, PocketBook and
others), the PDF or HTML.

To install dbtoepub:
"apt-get install dbtoepub"

I'm not able to write blueprints, because.

Thanks.
