I also have not yet looked at it.
If I recall correctly, only Felipe and I had considered to work on the
documentation (Felipe on merg the two sources, and I on converting to
Markdown). So if you want to try merge, Marc, it should be safe to do
that now, without risk of clashing with related efforts.
I agree that CDBS is not dead, and our users therefore will benefit from
an improved documentation. I have no plans to abandon CDBS!
If you (like me) suspect that your merging efforts will be easier to do
_after_ converting to Markdown, then tell me, and I shall try harder to
take some time to look into that conversion (for both the mainline docs
and yours, and also for translations of yours!).
