Hi All

As most of you will know I have been converting the Kohadocs to use
Sphinx instead of Docbook XML.

This is all ready to go. Both the master branch and the manual16.11.x 
branches are using Sphinx.

You can see them here

Sphinx uses restructured text (like markdown) which is easier to read
and edit. The file is broken up into smaller sections under en/source

You will see a list of files like 01_intro.rst

You can open these in any text editor you like, the format is quite
simple to understand, but if you want to do something fancy you can read
the primer here http://www.sphinx-doc.org/en/1.4.8/rest.html#rst-primer

So you can submit patches the way people have always done.
If you want, you can go to 

And submit merge requests.

You can even edit the files in your webbrowser, eg

And select edit (if you are logged in). You can use the preview link to
see what it will look like before you submit your changes.

Happy documenting everyone
