I'm utterly baffled by this. I thought the whole point of the
Open Source community was to build good tools.

If Docbook SGML is the best way to build Linux documentation
(which there seems to be a consensus on, and I'm not about to
quibble) then I'd say maintaining and improving the tools is a
high priority item.

Tools are more important than manifestos, web sites, ... in
fact considerably more important than anything I see the core
team doing. Granted, those things need doing too, but if the
choice is between "the LDP effort" and "support/maint. of the
sgmltools toolset", please do the tools.
