used a tool developed by Nicolas to migrate the xooki backed HTML docs to asciidoc. This tool
auto-generated the asciidoc text and for most part no other changes were needed. However,
there are some fixes the generated asciidoc will need which I’m doing and will continue
to do in the coming days to fix any issues with the generated doc. Once the fixes are done,
soon, we’ll remove the xooki backed documentation completely from our git repo. For now
though, any new documentation or changes should go into the asciidoc files.

I actually forgot to send a mail yesterday, but I setup our nightly Ivy job on Jenkins to
publish the latest generated docs as build artifact so that it gives everyone a chance to
view/review it. It’s here
We could just push it to the site under master but I wasn’t too sure if it’s the right
time to do that or if we should just cleanup the rest of the issues in the doc before starting
to push it there.

many, without useless double checks. I see 4 big parts in the doc: the ant tasks, the pages
related to the ivy file, the pages related to the ivysettings, and the other pages. If 4 volunteers
can do a quick review of each page, I think we can be pretty confident that we didn’t leave
any ugliness somewhere. The goal wouldn’t to do a fine grain review, but ensure that everything
is readable. wdyt ?

Sounds a good idea. I’ll start off with the “Settings” which relates to the Ivy settings
