Seems reasonable. I'm merging some edits from the doc wiki, I'll include
this unless someone has a better suggestion.

It's quite a painful process to fix all doc build errors. Any help would be

Sphinx by typing "make latex" in the doc directory (gives O(700) warnings),
then go through the build log to locate issues. Takes a long time though.
