Re: Lubuntu Manual Meeting? or some thing


You are well on your way now. Good work so far.
You now have a (basic) team of people who will make the outlines for a hopefully successful Lubuntu Manual Project. Experienced members of the Ubuntu manual Team will help you in this process. We use a shared spreadsheet (1), where contributors can add their names to the chapters or sections they want to work on. We also have an authors coordinator (Jim), an editors coordinator (Hannie), a LaTeX specialist (Kevin), and a screenshot team (Carsten, Sylvie). If you need any help, just contact one of us, or mail your questions to our mailing list.
Good luck!

Sorry about my absence, a thing popped up that took a little while to
deal with.  Let's see if we can get this thing under way.
Progress so far:

(1) A script exists to get people set up with the tools they need, it
just needs a trivial change to branch "our" bzr branch not the main
ubuntu-manual one.

(2) A bzr branch is now created, but currently empty.  I'll start
populating it with the "infrastructure" files needed in the next few days.

Do you want a meeting to discuss how you'd like to contribute etc. or
would a discussion on a mailing list do?
Mailing list is fine at the moment.

I see myself as mainly a developer (toolsmith) here, getting things
started out, and probably also some editing work later as time permits.

Until we define our basic document structure (presumably as close to
that of Ubuntu Manual as we can), no-one can state which chapters they
will work on, because there *is* no list of chapters!  So, specifics of
"how you'd like to contribute" are going to be awkward to specify until
we reach the point of having an agreed chapter list/table of contents.

What kind of description of "how you'd like to contribute" are you
hoping for from people at this early stage?  Just one of

  * Author
  * Editor
  * Translator
  * Programmer
  * Designer

as defined at http://ubuntu-manual.org/getinvolved ?

If you'd prefer a meeting, is IRC, Google Hangout, some thing else
If we do need a meeting, we should use IRC.  It is familiar, low
bandwidth, and meetingology exists.
