Publish PostGIS manuals in ePub format

Sounds like docbook has some mechanism for generating ePubs. PostgreSQL has started to do this as noted in Andrew Dunstan's blog

I'd LOVE to have PostGIS manual available in ePub format for all those crazy folks who like to read the manual on their Android and iPhone.

I have debbie autogenerating ePub now. There are a couple of issues which I'll put as separate tickets.

If anyone wants to look at the output: (also linked on docs page: )

The first issue is the new:

make epub

I added to docs, requires you copy all the generated images to the doc/images/ folder whereas we have them in html/images.

the doctoepub ruby thing did not have a -I option like dblatex. Also the css styling (I just applied the html one), looks shall we say "creepy" in my firefox epub viewer. Images also seem to float about in an equally creepy way.

I hope it looks better on a tablet or smartphone. I'm too lazy to pull out my android tablet to test.
