Build the Eclipse Project Handbook as EPUB

The EPUB format is popular for publishing books to various devices. The content can be reflowed to support various screen sizes and most reading systems allows for annotations and bookmarks. This makes the format suitable for user guides and reference manuals such as the "Eclipse Project Handbook".
There are several ways of generating an EPUB from HTML. One method would be to use the Asciidoctor EPUB output. This is an ambitious project that also offers Kindle output format. However, it is still in alpha stage and lacks some important features, such as the automatic inclusion of referenced files (images, CSS, etc.).
The other viable method would be to use the Eclipse Mylyn Docs tools. These only offers means to package already generated XHTML into an EPUB but does this in a fully featured standards-compliant manner. It is also fairly easy to use.
