After I have spruced the Beacon code and finally finished the DocBook DTD with the initial subset, I am going to start the next big task of getting Beacon integrated with Zikula and Publican for a seamless documentation experience.
It looks like Zikula has some text editors and a plug-in for them. I have to find the best way to get Beacon fit in that work flow. Fortunately Beacon already has a feature that allows one to embed it on any page. So it shouldn't be that difficult.
Am still looking for a best way to get Beacon integrated with Publican. It would be nice if the community can suggest a way to do it.
