You can easily create profiled source tarballs for translation or review. DAPS supports authors by providing linkchecker, validator, spellchecker, and editor macros. It is well suited to manage large documentation projects with multiple authors using the DAPS docmanager.

To maintain speed, it does not extract all content from the e-book or check the structure for errors.
mdepub is a tool that allows you to compose a book in Markdown format and use Pandoc and Calibre to compile an Epub package including all of the book's source material.
