I've begun work on the documentation, but I have not made many copy changes yet. Mostly I am concentrating on styling and portability. The results so far are that sphinx is used to generate the rst documentation and all html docs have been converted. The code is available here: https://github.com/dcolish/xapian/tree/docs/xapian-core/docs. Sphinx is easily installed using pip.

I'm also trying out hosting on readthedocs.org for Xapian. Feedback is welcome: http://xapian.rtfd.org
