That brings in converted confluence documentation.
It is synced with todays content in confluence.
This is just a start, going forward we should
- Split docs between core & full
- Each subsystem could have docs folder that would be than agreggated
- Publish docs somewhere. Maybe use GH for start http://wildfly.github.io/
- Restrucutre docs into few books instead of what we have now.
As we get into this last bit, we should look into the modular stuff Bob mentioned. It sounds like it would mean a large scale rewrite, so if we start doing things that are more than just moving some files around we should consider the bigger picture.
We have recent used he doc teams “modular documentation templates” and I think they are lovely and also makes the docs team happy.
Ask your doctor if modular documentation templates are right for you.

Sounds like a good goal, but I don't think Tomaz should be responsible for correcting all our docs to make them conform. For many of these I doubt the Confluence markup includes relevant metadata that would have allowed that (e.g. that a given literal was a filename, hence [filename]`thename` instead of `thename`. We'd need to assign owners to various pages and have them correct them. An obvious initial owner being the component lead for the component that's most relevant to the page.

I would suggest that we ensure that our produced AsciiDoc files
