From roff to reStructuredText

So far we have been writing the man page directly in roff, the original man-page format. However, no tool is available to produce decent HTML output for roff, and we were constantly in need of minor or major manual edits every time an updated manual page had to be brought to the website.

To end this pain we chose to move to a more general markup language, reStructuredText, from which we are able to generate healthy, semantic and beautiful outputs in all required formats – like roff and HTML – entirely automatically.
