I don't want to ask the Floss people to do anything much beyond sending us their books. cdh On Mar 30, 2010, at 6:20 PM, Jared Wright wrote: Seconding Sina, I know they said PDF is easier, but if they could produce HTML editions without too much inconvenience it'd be fantastic.

Adam says that almost all of their books use GPL as their license and that he can provide their entire catalogue in PDF rolled up into a big .tar file. His note is below. This is all happening pretty fast so I haven't had the chance to take a look at the rest of the books they have but I'd bet that some will interest some of you. If Jamal or Elf want, they can take the entire .tar open it up and put as much as they like on their sites. If PDF needs to be converted to text, I'm sure that won't be too hard. Begin forwarded message: From: adam hyde <adam@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:adam@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>> hey Chris and Deborah, All books from FLOSS Manuals are available under a free license and you are welcome to use them as you choose for free as long as the same license is maintained (we use the GPL for all books except 3 or 4 which are either CC-BY-SA or FDL). We can provide PDF, plain html (each book on one page) or odt. Probably for us the PDF is the easiest to provide. Here is an example of a PDF from us: http://en.flossmanuals.net/Ardour/FM_22Mar10.pdf we can provide you with a tar of all the manuals in pdf if you like... adam Founder FLOSS Manuals German mobile : + 49 177 4935122 Email : adam@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:adam@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> irc: irc.freenode.net<http://irc.freenode.net> #flossmanuals "Free manuals for free software" http://www.flossmanuals.net/about ________________________________ This e-mail and any attachments to it are confidential and are intended solely for use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
