I've been working on a static site generator called Pintail. It's
geared toward documentation sites, to replace various ad hoc shell
scripts used in GNOME and other projects, but it can be used to build

It has native support for Mallard and DocBook and has plugins for
AsciiDoc and Ducktype (both lightweight syntaxes that get pushed
