Everybody _can_ use Kupu. It is even the default.

We try hard to circumvent the problems, that arise with it, in the
background and without too much noise (this might become the Even
Cavemen Can Use ReST project). As a matter of fact, using HTML means
more work for volunteers and pointing to that should be allowed on this

To summarize: if you love your local Grok Documentation Maintainers, use
ReST. If you do not or if you're in a hurry, use Kupu. Nobody will get
shot (well, most probably ;-), okay?

Everybody _can_ use Kupu. It is even the default.

Kind regards,
