I'm converting the FreeS/WAN docs:
to DocBook (they're currently HTML) with the aim of producing a HowTo
for FreeS/WAN. That would be much less general than what you propose,
but pieces of it -- glossary, web links, bibliography -- might be of
use to you. The current doc is under GPL license. HowTo will either
be GPL or GNU Doc license.
