The discuss mailinglist was teeming with new initiatives this week:
Andy Oram posted an interesting and well written article titled Linux Documentation: What's There and What's Needed. The web-log entry is a condensed form of a talk given by Andy at LinuxWorld in January 2004. The article discusses the state of Linux Documentation and mentions the LDP in general terms.
The "unofficial"TLDP CD-ROM, for people with low bandwidth or low patience levels can be obtained from LinuxCentral. As Bradley Glonka, long-time contributor to the LinuxCentral project puts it: "We don't expect to make big money with this CD release. Some people think our project is just the Nth flat commerce initiative, but we really feel that we are part of the community. We once sent an official copy of Debian to all the Debian developers."
LinuxCentral is donating part of the revenue, accumulated by selling this CD, to the TLDP project. Thanks, guys!
