It's not too complex, but you'd need a script called lyxport I wrote a while 
back.  That's b/c I keep the sources in lyx, and the html/pdf are built from 

lyxport is at:  http://www-hep.colorado.edu/~fperez/lyxport

I also use a few other scripts to build everything, but those are included in 
the CVS sources.

Basically, you can do the build by grabbing the tools/release shell script and 
commenting out the lines (at the end) which upload the released files to 
scipy.org.  It will do everything for you, leaving a built rpm/tgz file in 

Or, grab the docs from my release tarballs :)
