#topic #346 Bundling exception request for Eclipse Sisu
There is a package called sisu (available in Debian since 2005 (started
in 1997), and used for example for documentation with translations) that
I have hoped to have packaged for Fedora.
The home page is pretty minimal
You are welcome to whatever help I can offer to package this for Fedora.
Thanks for your cosideration.
It is described in Debian as follows:

Description-en: documents - structuring, publishing in multiple formats and search
SiSU is a lightweight markup based, command line oriented, document
structuring, publishing and search framework for document collections.
With minimal preparation of a plain-text (UTF-8) file, using sisu markup
syntax in your text editor of choice, SiSU can generate various document
formats (most of which share a common object numbering system for locating
content), including plain text, HTML, XHTML, XML, EPUB, OpenDocument text
(ODF:ODT), LaTeX, PDF files, and populate an SQL database with objects
(roughly paragraph-sized chunks) so searches may be performed and matches
returned with that degree of granularity. Think being able to finely match
text in documents across different output formats and across languages if you
have translations of the same document, using common object numbers.
Additionally for search, your criteria is met by these documents at these
locations within each document (equally relevant across different output
formats and languages). To be clear (if obvious) page numbers provide none of
this functionality. Object numbering is particularly suitable for "published"
works (finalized texts as opposed to works that are frequently changed or
updated) for which it provides a fixed means of reference of content. Document
outputs also share semantic meta-data provided.
SiSU also provides concordance files, document content certificates and
manifests of generated output. SiSU provides the means to make book indexes
that make use of its object numbering.
A vim syntax highlighting file and an ftplugin with folds for sisu markup is
provided. Vim 7 includes syntax highlighting for SiSU. Some syntax hilighting
is also available for Emacs and a few other editors.
Dependencies for various features are taken care of in sisu related packages.
The package sisu-complete installs the whole of SiSU.
Additional document markup samples are provided in the package
sisu-markup-samples which is found in the non-free archive the licenses for
the substantive content of the marked up documents provided is that provided
by the author or original publisher.
SiSU uses utf-8 & parses left to right. Currently supported languages:

SiSU works well under po4a translation management, for which an administrative
sample Rakefile is provided with sisu_manual under markup-samples.
