No script will be created to translate from docuwiki to xml because
the wiki will mirror upstream as close as possible. Changes from
upstream will be applied to the wiki as they are received. If someone
wished to contribute to the slackbook they can mirror the git repo as
listed on the website and pass patches back to Allan. If good
recommendations are made in the wiki talk pages then I will take the
initiative to test them out and submit the changes for the users if

My goal is to use the git repo to check for regular updates and append
the changes to the wiki within 24 hours, however for your translation
you can use my wiki changes or track the changes yourself with a local
git copy.

Have you contacted our French translator to see if you can assist him
in translating the book for the wiki to reduce duplication?
