Subject Re: Manual + xdocs etc

Hello Kev,

I am interested, but I need to get myself a new laptop to start really
working on ant again. My hard disk is nearly dead :(, so I did not use my
laptop since shortly after the Ant 1.6.5 release.

I have no ideas about graphics and stylesheets, but I have some about the
process of bringing the docs in order. 

I think we should reorder the existing docs along the structure which I
think Erik Hatcher had conceived and which is incarned by the @ant.category
tags in the source code (scm, packaging, ...).

I am still interested by the idea of deriving the docs from the source code.
Knowing that there would be about 50% to 60% of the doc (and some of the
most interesting parts) which will remain outside of the source code.

For instance the examples about each task, and transversal subjects like
"developing with Ant" or "installing Ant"
