I am not 100% sure what you're asking, so I will provide you with
1) If you are looking to contribute to documentation today, right now,
there is no need to do anything with this information. Documentation
is in DocBook today and as long as you use DocBook you will be fine.
2) If you want to influence how documentation will be written after the
conversion to AsciiDoc, then please visit the wikipage and review the
DocBook tags in the table. If there is a tag you feel like we should
keep for whatever reason (typically consistency of presentation,
signals to localizers, or automated testing) add the explanation in
the third column.
If you're going to edit the table, don't forget that we don't want to
recreate DocBook in AsciiDoc and so we want to try and strive for the
smallest semantic markup tag set possible.
