Open Source Documentation

This is very hum­bling to me. Last week, at the Doc­Train West con­fer­ence, 25 writ­ers pro­duced a man­u­al for Fire­Fox in just two days as part of the FLOSS Man­u­als project. The man­u­al is freely avail­able online and is dis­trib­uted in a Cre­ative Com­mons CC-BY-SA license. You can pur­chase a print-on-demand copy of the man­u­al from LuLu as well, which helps to sup­port the FLOSS project. So a spe­cial thanks to all those folks who spent some time indoors (when they could have been enjoy­ing Palm Springs) to help the open source com­mu­ni­ty. I’ve already sent a link to the man­u­al to my mom, who uses Fire­Fox on her mac!
