There are a couple of discussions still going on from last week, and some new items. Join our discussion list for more!
Chris Karakas, maintainer of the PHP-Nuke HOWTO, wants to put the information he manages in a Wiki clone, but he is afraid he'll have to abandon his copyright if he lets other people edit the same data. David Lawyer points out that every copyright should have an owner.
The idea came up to donate this PHP-Nuke Wiki to the Free Software Foundation and let them have the copyright, but it was decided that this would be too complicated and too much honor for a Wiki. The concensus now is that everybody contributing to the Wiki makes themselves co-owner of the copyright.
TLDP staff has been preparing an announcement which will be sent out to a number of organizations, such as the Linux Weekly News, Slashdot and many more. You have until next Sunday to send in any comments you may have on this announcement. Here is the preview!
The Linux Documentation Project (TLDP) is working on developing free, high quality documentation for the GNU/Linux operating system. You can help TLDP by: Reviewing one of the draft versions of the documents in progress, or picking up one of the unmaintained documents and reviving it or providing assistance with markup. You are welcome to participate in TLDP discussions by joining <email@example.com>. Announcements about TLDP are made at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Help us create this weekly newsletter. We need volunteers who follow the community (mailing lists, newsgroups, web channels) and report events related to The Linux Documentation Project. Please update us by sending in the information and links to <email@example.com>.
LDP Weekly News is compiled and edited by Machtelt Garrels, Torsten Schlabach and Y Giridhar Appaji Nag with help from several other people.
