Why openstack moved to rst documentation

Hi Team,

It might be a good project but affects the end-user, with so much pain to convert offine documentation to pdf. Why did the openstack community decide to take away the pdf documentation links? Is there any way to get a pdf directly from openstack rather than creating one? I think this is nothing but trouble and too much pain for the end-user.

Any chance you would be publishing the pdf links? I really agree to the openstack documentation team going ahead with their project on maintaining the same but for end users I would suggest the team do provide the pdf!!!

Hi, the barrier to entry for authoring XML became too high, so we moved to RST. The docs team is now working on a PDF output solution. See http://specs.openstack.org/openstack/docs-specs/specs/ocata/build-pdf-from-rst-guides.html (http://specs.openstack.org/openstack/...).
