Reading docs from CVS

Rather than doing temporary builds of documents, you can use the yelp
GNOME Help Browser to read DocBook documents directly.  To read a
document "under construction" in CVS, do the following:

1.  Checkout the document:
   $ export CVSROOT=:ext:<username>
   $ cvs co install-guide-devel
2.  Validate the XML to ensure all the dependency files are bulit:
   $ cd install-guide-devel/install-guide
   $ make validate-xml-<LANG>            # <LANG> = en_US, pt, ...
3.  Open the document "parent" file in yelp:
   $ yelp file://$PWD/<LANG>/fedora-install-guide.xml

As you make changes, you can hit Ctrl+R in yelp to reload the changes
immediately.  This is also far easier than rebuilding to see your
changes in HTML!
