I sent (a rather general) response to the list with subject "rst and
docbook parsers" at Thu, 18 Sep 2008 11:00:59 +0200, didn't that get
through to you?

Maybe the moin wiki rst / docbook users should try to organize and
participate a bit more in moin development - I am sure there are some
python coders within the rst using moin wiki users (and maybe the same
is true for docbook).

I am sure an active developer / maintainer who uses this code himself
could test and fix some of the problems quite easily.

(The other long term option would be to move the rst/docbook support
from moin distribution to the market pages on the wiki and consider it
as 3rd party supported extension.)
