I don't know the details, but the docgrok tool should create sphinx 
documentation. There's been some talk about a special Plone plugin of 
which I forget the name now to integrate it all into Plone, and then 
progress ended.

I think we should do whatever works, as long as we can write simple 
instructions for releasers. Of course the layout should look at least 
somewhat integrated with the rest of the Grok website, and there should 
be links from the Plone stuff to the sphinx site and back. The current 
content that will move to sphinx (main tutorial, developer notes) should 
  be removed from Plone and somehow redirect to the new locations.

I doubt any of this is much work, it's just that it's not happening. 
Someone needs to take the lead on this. I've been loath to do so, but 
the amount of work I've been doing so far to try to get someone else to 
do the work is becoming so much I am tempted to do so myself. I will 
resist the temptation for a while longer, though, as I really want to 
spread the work around. This is good for the community, and it allows me 
to be lazier to boot. :)
