Subject: New software: db2man, converts docbook to Unix manual pages
As I have documented "findlib" in the SGML docbook-DTD, I needed a tool
to convert docbook to Unix manual pages. This does db2man, available at

	http://people.darmstadt.netsurf.de/Gerd.Stolpmann/ocaml

db2man prints a manual page for every "refentry" section. The document
must already be transformed to XML, for example with James Clark's sx
tool. db2man uses Christian Lindig's XML parser.

Note that the implementation is only partial, as I used only some tags.
