You can change it in the pom of the current docbook being processed, like this


We could add a maven properties setting, in the parent-pom-docbook, which could
be overridden, for example:

  <properties>                         <!-- existing -->
    <bookNameRoot>tools</bookNameRoot> <!-- existing -->
    <pdfPaperType>A4</pdfPaperType>    <-- possible new property -->

This would make overriding simpler.

Also, since maven can use Java System Properties, which can be set from the
command line, using -DpdfPaperType=A4, this could be specified as a command line

Please feel free to suggest other approaches.
