I was wondering a few things about the book...
First up...can we get this put prominently on the Inkscape site? :
I can definitely take a look at that on Monday
Ugh, and I've just posted this:
News for the website are coming.
Next...can everyone that was at the sprint send me your postal
address. I would like to send you a copy of the book.
LGM : It seems the LGM will be in may in Montreal...it also sounds
like the meeting will have several days for people to work together...how
about a second book sprint during the event to take the manual further?
Sounds good to me, except everybody will be out in the city having fun
and we will be stuck in some basement with no view again :-)
Of course, if we come a day or two earlier, we will have plenty of
time for meetings. At last LGM I was two days earlier, so I could
participate at two extra LGM related events. The campus at Ecole
Polytechnique in Montreal has two nice halls/kitchens with good
furniture per floor and prices are reasonable (at expense of private
related to this are two other issues :
1. we can get a ISBN number (FM can pay for it, its about 100 euro all up).
If we do this the book will be listed on Amazon etc...do you want me to do this?
If so we need to edit it a little as I noticed a few oddities in the printed version.
Its a days work but we need a 1 -day mini-sprint (remote) to clean it up.
Do we need an ISBN number for each edition of the book? Because I can
foresee a new edition each 3-4 months.
2. if you decide a 'yes' on the LGM and ISBN then i have
another plan too...
how about we combine efforts to promote the bejeebers out of the book
(especially before christmas) and see if we can sell enough to pay for everyone
to get to Montreal?
