The repository is already on our hardware:
http://sources.gentoo.org/gitweb/?p=devmanual.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/docbook (although I'd like to have this on gogo so that we can get the help of other people beside developers; a lot of the layout work here has been done by Mauro who's not a developer — although I was meaning to recruit him quite a while ago).

As for the conversion, I'm attaching the xsl I've been using; it only
gives a rough draft to starts with, then it's manual labour.

It does not lose any feature during the move as Docbook 5 is much more
expressive; and Mauro prepared a working syntax highlighter for the
ebuild syntax.
