We can work on the saucy branch before an alpha version is released in
the sense that we can start by improving what is already there. Although
previous versions have been proofread, there are always parts that need
to be improved.
If authors/editors of previous versions are willing to help with this
new version, you may start proofreading/improving "your chapter" in
saucy as from this moment. Thus there will be more time to investigate
what's new in saucy when the alpha version is available.
We already have prepared the new spreadsheet for saucy (1). I invite
everyone who wants to contribute to saucy (new contributors included) to
add your name to the spreadsheet. Just add your name to the
chapter/section you would like to work on. More than one name for a
chapter/section is allowed because more people can work on one
chapter/section and you may also choose more than one chapter/section.
The coordinators will assign the chapters to authors/editors. The
earlier we start, the better.
There really isn't anything that can be done until at least an Alpha version is
released, and probably not until the beta is released later on.
Have a great day.:)
