I've been toying with building a system that combines a wiki editing 
process with Sphinx tools allowing a group of people to write books 
using restructured text.  FLOSS Manuals (http://en.flossmanuals.net/) 
does a similar thing.  I was going to use this system for writing a Miro 
User Manual and a Miro Development Manual.

There was a GSOC project for Sphinx to allow for inline comments through 
a web-site.  Did that project succeed?  I can't remember enough about it 
to find details or status.  That would be a useful feature, too.

I haven't registered with Bookoven, so I can't tell what it does or how 
it does it.  I do think this kind of thing is interesting.
