Marcello Perathoner, from Project Gutenberg, has just announced that they are considering using ReStructuredText as master format. In his own words:

Project Gutenberg (PG) is a volunteer effort to digitize and make available to everybody books whose copyright has expired. We OCR the books and proofread them and make them available in a variety of formats.

PG has been evaluating RST as a master format to generate HTML, EPUB, Kindle, PDF and plain text formats.

In that course I have written some patches to RST. I now want to discuss them and maybe improve my ways. If you see fit, my patches could be added to the RST core.

It's nice to see this two lovely projects playing together :)
