Re: Lubuntu Manual Meeting? or some thing
Might I suggest making a copy of the spreadsheet and renaming it to
reflect that it's for the Lubuntu Manual, and keeping it in the same
Google Docs folder/account as the current one?
I'm suggesting this because while the content will change, the chapters
will pretty much remain the same. And in some cases, aside from changing
Ubuntu to Lubuntu, the content may be close (or the same).
Have a great day.:)
