In my head, I have started composing a message about wiki -> pdf,
which is very close to a beta 1 release. Meanwhile, let me just
note that I think it's going to be a case where group-wide
enabling is appropriate (site-wide would be nicer, but I agree
that this is not necessarily a good idea).
The wiki -> pdf engine lets an information seeker typeset:
- a single page
- all the pages on a trail (using publish trail)
- the backlinks to a page (selectable)
- the links on a page (selectable)
- search results (selectable)
- category links (selectable)
- PITS lists (using wikiforms)
- calendar entries (using wikicalendar)
So just enabling it for a single page would severely limit the
Incidentally, it also becomes possible to output any of the above
to another XML dtd, such as Open Office, if you know the wiki ->
xml translation rules.
So setting up a demonstation group seems to me to be a useful
thing to do. I think this would allow one to typeset the
DocumentationIndex page, to produce a printable user manual,
but I haven't yet tested this particular option.
Not surprisingly, the above requires a package of scripts.
