Re: Introduction


Hello Paddy,
Yes, you have come to the right place, and thank you for your offer to help with the proof-reading. For a start, I want to assign you to the chapter "Prologue". I will send you the file prologue.tex in a separate email, together with the current file "ubuntu-manual.pdf" where you can see the results so far. You can open the .tex file in any text editor (I use gedit), make corrections if necessary and then send the file back to me. I use a diff tool, Meld, to check what changes you have made. If you want to add comment to the file, please begin with %. If you have any questions, please send them to this list or to me. You can also ask questions on irc, freenode #ubuntu-manual.

Hello Ubuntu Manual Team,

I am new here.

It was suggested that I introduce myself to you and volunteer to help with proof-reading and cleaning up articles.

I would like to help out.

If you have any articles that you would like me to proof-read for grammar, spelling and readability, I will be happy to help.

If I am posting in the wrong place, or if there is somewhere else I should be looking to find articles, please point me in the right direction.

About me:
My English is good; I am an able article-writer; and I have frequently proof-read for colleagues (in a different profession). I contribute regularly to the Ubuntu Forums, and get involved (to a much smaller extent) in Brainstorm and a couple of other areas. I usually use British English (I live in England), but if you require me to use American English, let me know.
