Re: [PlanetCCRMA] Music Spin



Hi:

The Fedora Musicians' Guide is an official document being prepared by the Documentation Project.  This carries much more weight than a wiki.

That said, increased participation would be great, and the Musicians' Guide is already on the Fedora wiki in my User: pages.  These could easily be transferred into the real wiki, and maintained in sync or independently of the official documentation, but I don't know if that sort of duplication is a good idea.  What we certainly could do is write complementary chapters with programs that aren't (yet) in the official guide.  Besides, as an open-source project, the official guide itself is already like a wiki in that people with free time can contribute with what they know best.

As for the current state of the Guide, the (terrible) first draft has been finished for a week, and is available on the wiki.  It's now been converted to DocBook (the format used by the Fedora Docs website), and is stored in a git repository on a fedorahosted.org account.  The plan is to post a draft to the Fedora Docs website this Tuesday, incorporating many improvements.  I'll post a notice to this list when the draft is ready - the more people who can read it and find errors, the better!

The wiki version of the Musicians' Guide, from this point, is not the most recent version.  Notices will be posted soon to indicate this.

is already the FLOSS manual for Ardour and PureData that has already
done some work in this direction. And it is nice because you can make
a snapshot of the wiki and print a PDF from the website.
