sorry to come back on this so late. It's nice that you finally transform 
the stuff to rst - but once you do this, this means that we won't be 
able to see anything on typo3.org for now because (as you know) the 
integration between your documentation server and typo3.org isn't ready 
at all (from my perspective). And I doubt that this will be done until 6.0.
