Great, thanks a lot!

As long as the grok.zope.org source is ReStructuredText it should be
fairly simple. Documents that were put on grok.zope.org with the inline
HTML editor will be more troublesome to convert.

Just out of curiosity: what formatting marks did you remove? We might be
able to support add support for them then.

I think you first have to create a (free) account on bitbucket.org
(unless you have one already) and then tell Sebastian your bitbucket
username. I'm sure he'll be glad to grant you permissions.

That's right and I'd even recommend to skip step one and use the locally
built Sphinx scripts (in the local bin/ directory) only. This way you
can be sure to use the same Sphinx/Jinja/whatever version as other

Best regards,
