I see that in src/docs/examples/xml_info your appear to
be working on an example.
I am very interested in seeing that being developed to
a quicktour example!

I am putting this in as a tracker RFE since I might
eventually drop from the mailing list, but I still
would like to learn once this is available!

P.S.: As per our mails, I am aware that there are
efforts underway (e.g. Visigoth, "OTOH, FTL, which is a
more general purpose component (to replace freemarker's
docgen based oncustomized XSLT of N.W.
(http://nwalsh.com/docbook/xsl/)), may want to do that
in the future. etc.) and that it may take 0.5 - 1 year
P.P.S.: what is OTOH?

    Sure, it may not need an entire "quicktour Step", but
    perhaps adding a paragraph in
    http://fmpp.sourceforge.net/qtour.html#sect3 with a link to
    the directory and a second link to FreeMaker's XML wrapping
    topic would be very helpful since I didn't find it so far
    there...

    But... why do you want to add this to the Quick Start? If somebody is
    interested in loading data from different data sources, (s)he should read
    the "Data Loaders" chapter. And there *is* a reference to FreeMarker
    manual. OK, not a link but... well, user will know where to find more
    information.

    Also, a reson why I do not like to promote the XML
    wrapper stuff, is that FreeMarker XML wrapping is IMHO so bad. There
    are plans to write a new XML wrapper, but... well, it will not be here in the
    near future, unless somebody contributes and do it instead of Attila.
