Hey all -- Publican 1.0 is very nearly here and addresses a large number 
of problems that we've all experienced with the 0.x versions of the 
tool. It's a lot faster too, which is always nice :)

In general, members of the docs team should not be shy about upgrading 
to the new tool as it becomes available in your version of Fedora; 
Publican 1.0 includes functionality to help you migrate documentss from 
the old version to the new version. Furthermore, you can include the 
files necessarily to build in Publican 0 or Publican 1 in the same 
document -- it's not an either/or scenario.

The only people who should *not* upgrade to the new Publican prior to 
the release of F-12 are those of us using Publican to build documents in 
languages other than English. Differences exist between the way that 
Publican 0 handled certain elements in PO files and the way that 
Publican 1 handles them. These changes have been made to make 
translators' jobs easier, but mean that some PO files translated for 
Publican 0 will require fine-tuning to build properly in Publican 1. 
Obviously, that's not something we should be doing for docs that are 
already frozen for translation!

The User Guide for Publican 1.0 is available here, if you want to read 
up on what's ahead: http://rlandmann.fedorapeople.org/pug/

If there's any way that I can help you through the transition, please 
don't hesitate to ask!
