Our current system is essentially checking rendered content in to

attention and content, such as wikis and blogs.  The adoption rates
are staggering by comparison.

I am sure that I have missed this somewhere, but what are the specific
pain points that make the source_control_toolchain_builder driven
system not adoption ready ?

Not enough time in a day to waste on learning something like this. I have been a active contributor via release notes but only on wiki edits. Someone else has been doing the conversion into docbook xml and publishing it.

Not that I don't know docbook xml or aren't aware of the benefits but it is simply too tedious to do on a regular basis. a CMS would cut the middlemen and let me publish directly, hopefully.
