Excellent! I tried creating a pdf using rst2pdf.  This is the process:

# get rst docs from svn
svn co https://svn.osgeo.org/osgeo/livedvd/gisvm/trunk/doc/

# modified conf.py and added the following extensions
extensions = ['sphinx.ext.autodoc', 'sphinx.ext.doctest',
'sphinx.ext.intersphinx', 'sphinx.ext.todo', 'sphinx.ext.coverage',
'sphinx.ext.pngmath', 'sphinx.ext.ifconfig', 'rst2pdf.pdfbuilder']

# compile rst
sphinx-build -w error_log.txt -bpdf -a doc _build_pdf

I get the following errors (full log removed):
WARNING: Cannot extract compound bibliographic field "Copyright".
WARNING: document isn't included in any toctree
WARNING: document isn't included in any toctree
WARNING: document isn't included in any toctree

/home/maning/Desktop/osgeo_live_doc/doc/translators.rst:: WARNING:
document isn't included in any toctree
WARNING: "pdf_documents" config value references unknown document contents

Any advice?

Ideally I want the following as pdf:
1.  Each project as a one page or 2.
2.  All URLs as plaintext.
3. Page size is half of A4 (8.3 by 5.8 inches portrait).

I can create a stylesheet for pdf printing.
