Just to bring that one up again: I'm still looking for a sane toolchain 
to edit/diff and patch XML files.

What I do have currently have is a set of automated tools to 
programmatically turn Upstream's documentation into something that looks 
more like CentOS documentation.
The main problem is that all the docs have to be reviewed and we will 
have to edit some of them.

What I need is a way to keep track of the editing that has to be done to 
turn the automatically processed upstream-docs into "real" CentOS 
documentation with the upstream references removed and/or updated. From 
time to time I had been looking around for a tool helping with that. If 
you (or somebody else) has a good idea just tell me.

The processing chain I originally planned is:

1. Upstream XML Docs + XSLT -> CentOSified XML Docs
2. CentOSified XML Docs + XML-Patches -> CentOS XML Docs

Part 1 is 99% done. The XSLT may need a few additional tweaks, but is is 
basically there (and has been for around two years now...)

Part 2 is completely missing due to a lack of the right tools, time and
