Timeline might not be the right word, since as far as I can tell there's
little that's actually about time there. :)  Let me know if I overlooked

Well, "timeline" was the word Glyph used previously for "order in which stuff will be done".
So that's what I stuck with.
As far as the (I'm going to call it) roadmap goes, the thought that's
pushed its way to the fore for me is that I'd like to try this with
something smaller and simpler than Twisted first.  It would be nice if
the Divmod projects would qualify here, but they may not be active
enough for any real experience to accumulate.
I haven't run my lore2sphinx script against the Divmod stuff yet, but I could certainly try it.
The intention is to convert the Divmod stuff as well as the Twisted stuff eventually though.

I've been concentrating on the Twisted docs, since they seemed the highest priority, but I
could detour a bit if you like.  Obviously that would slow progress on the Twisted stuff a little.
pyOpenSSL might work.  It uses the original CPython tex documentation
system, so the conversion would (presumably) be done with whatever tools
were used for CPython's own documentation, not the new Lore->Sphinx
converter.  It would still be a useful way to get more familiar with
Sphinx, though.  The downside is that I'm pretty much the only Twisted
developer who works on pyOpenSSL, so it wouldn't help anyone else get
any experience.

I have no idea what tools were originally used for that conversion.  Might be interesting to try if we could find out though. Also, I presume we'd need the sources for the docs.  Are they in the tarball?  Or elsewhere?

Of course if your objective is to learn Sphinx, you might be better off converting the pyOpenSSL docs by hand.  They seem pretty short (except for section 3).

If you'd like to try that, I'd be happy to assist.
