I will resume my editing efforts and will submit the revisions by chapter
to spread the load. I hope to have the first patch ready in the next couple
of days. I have also noticed missing images and images on the website that
do not exist in the repo, would you like for me to create/pull those images
and can you place the existing images into a central directory in the repo?

My script is a basic bash replace script that changes xml flags to
character values like ** that are replicated for numerous situations and it
requires a lot of manual corrections before publishing, it cannot be
reverse engineered to push the document back to the official format.
 Instead I am looking into the potential of creating a xsl stylesheet that
can convert the original xsl documents into docuwiki format, if I can
accomplish it then I will post the instructions and stylesheet to my github
