RUP DocBook Templates

For the Rational Unified Process a lot of document templates are available. Unfortunately they are available as MS Word templates only. This puts people who do not own a copy of MS Office (e.g. users) in a disadvantage. The import facilities of OpenOffice are good but not always adequate enough.

I also think that files that should be traceable  should be kept in a Version Control System. MS Word documents, binary as they are, are not well suited for this. And the third reason: MS Word files are not really easily convertible to other formats, e.g. HTML for online publishing.

Therefore I converted them to the DocBook format, which I think takes away all the objections regarding the MS Word files as I mentioned them. You can find the page with the templates here.
