well, kind of both. I'd like to have a synopsis for each command / package / environment and a concise description as well. The description should be long enough to make clear what the command / package / .. is about, but not much more. If it takes an example to that, than I'd include an example.

I use XML as an export format and as an input format (round trip). See for example
or for a command (not much filled in yet)
texinfo is too verbose for me. The idea is to have a fully and easily parseable output format to generate more interesting stuff that I am not aware of yet. And my day to day work is around XML, so that suggests itself to use that. I just need some help / source to fill in the gaps.

First I read the XML file into the server and then generate (templating system) the HTML files from that.
