@firstname.lastname@example.org @darktable @secretlifeofmatt SGML is pretty much dead and died in the late 80s. The verbosity of docbook is too much to write comfortably without a good editor, for which there isn't one that is FOSS. The markdown in this project iis simple on purpose and we'll make it work, since we want to focus on content, not on markup.
The darktable user manual is largely outdated. Problem is it uses an esoteric kind of XML required by a brittle software stack (Saxon) to be compiled into HTML or PDF.
This complexity steers away many contributors.
But thanks to Chris Elston, @secretlifeofmatt and @paperdigits, it is being rewritten in Markdown with a better "tutorial" approach.
