The chances of any of this going unmaintained are pretty small. We're
talking about a tool set that's been continually supported for over 15
years, and which has the backing of one of the oldest and most mature
projects in all of open source.
What are the specific features of pintail (or the pipeline of
AsciiDoc to Mallard) that we want to use that aren't available in
I can only speak to the solutions we evaluated at the FAD, and Pete or
Zach might have have different thoughts. But here's what I think were
some compelling bits:
* Ability to manage entire site structure.
* Ability to grab different documents from different git repositories.
* Ability to work with existing content, without requiring everything
to be converted at once.
* Per-document search that works. Most site tools aren't designed for
docs and just have global search.
* Well-managed translations with access to powerful translation tools.
