[Xen-API] Proposal - Add xe manpages to xen-org

Xen Community,

  I have a team of people frantically creating manpages for the xe command and all of it's 361 subcommands. The initial source documentation is in asciidoc but also saved as Docbook. From docbook we transform to epub, html, manpage and pdf. This is currently being hosted in a subversion server at a Seattle area college and we'd like to move it to the xen-org github so it's public, can be reviewed, commented on and contributed too.

We will also document the additional commands specific to xenserver/xcp (xe-edit-bootloader and others like it as time permits.

For each section of commands we're also writing xcp tools that describe how to script the xe command and use it's various options/parameters. These tools have been a godsend in our own administration so far and should be packages and distributed themselves.Â

All of our documentation is created with future XSLT transforms being able to include or remove sections with the Administration guide and xe help in mind.Â

This is an official proposal to add this project to xen-org.
