Re: Status manual 11.10 oct 27



@Kartyk: Who is/are finally the co-author/s ?

At the moment what we need most is editors. You can see on the spreadsheet
[1] which are the sections that need editors.
Then the sections that are to be finished shortly are the "Browsing the
web", "Ubuntu One" -if it isn't finished- and i guess the "Troubleshooting"
chapter if everything goes well. For the "Getting Online" minor changes need
to be done, if aren't done. Ryan ?
Also the "Installation" chapter must be finished from what i see.

Our current focus must be the proofreading of the manual, the manual is

To recap the sections/chapters that need proodreading are:

*The Ubuntu Desktop (it's a big chapter, i guess a second editor would be
*Viewing and Editing Photos
*Listening to Music
*Learning More

One problem is that we don't get enough feedback from editors.
@Editors: We need hear from you editors :), let us know what problems are
you facing, your questions, and the status of your work. Also you can write
in [1] about the status of your work.
