Thanks, Yves, for your kind words on the MySQL reference manual : ) 

Just to give you an idea: 
- We use DocBook ( as the schema for our XML-based authoring of the manual. 
- The DocBook source files are controlled by an SVN repository, which allows check-ins and check-outs from different sites. 
- Each writer uses his or her own favorite tool to edit the DocBook source files: some use oXygen, some use vi, and so on. And, yes, we only use tools that meet our security standards. 
- We use DocBook XSL (lightly customized) to publish in different formats. 
- We have built a whole system of scripts to handle dependencies and cross-references among the source files, and for automating our build processes. 

Hope this helps.
