The DocBook-VM project is an attempt to create a turn-key Virtual Machine (VM) to be imported into Oracle's VirtualBox. The tool chain consists of GNU Make driving xsltproc, DocBook 5 with name spaces, and Apache fop version 1.0.

The VM is an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (32-bit) Linux box.

The project's files can be accessed at this Dropbox site:

The VM was released today (2012-03-05) at 0715 US CST and should finish the Dropbox upload by 1130 (1.5 Gb, est. 4 hr. upload time).

The VM user name is "vuser" and the password is "Vuser!" (you should change the password after you get the VM up and running).

Comments and suggestions are welcome.
