Generate lists (gen-list)

The gen-list step examines the input files and creates lists of topics, images, document properties, or other content. These lists are used by later steps in the pipeline. For example, one list includes all topics that make use of the conref attribute; only those files are processed during the conref stage of the build. This step is implemented in Ant and Java.

The result of this list is a set of several list files in the temporary directory, including dita.list and
