with the attached patch (quite easy honestly ;)) we can generate an EPUB.

I don't have a real e-book reader to test it on, but I used calibre (and its viewer) and the file is usable, and the cross-reference links works just fine; there are some CSS effects that are not shown (like the color in some boxes, like See also sections and so), but at least we have something to work with :)

What do you think would be the next steps?

The next step is publishing these epubs and waiting for the resulting flood of bug reports :)

ah great, 'bugs-generator' is my middle name :)

If I got it right, I've prepared another patch to add the archives generation in Doc/makefile (for dist target) and then add them to the download page.

Just let me know if I missed something, I'm still learning

Hi, I've updated the patch, to also mention the 'epub' target in Dco/README.txt but mainly to fix an HTML error in indexcontent.html that prevents the epub to be correctly generated.

it would be nice to have some short TOC at the beginning.

at the moment, one has to scroll through several pages of "what's new in python [23].[0-9]" table of contents until he/she gets into tutorial.
