[K12OSN] Re: [Osswriters] Linux in Education Book?

Dear Karl,

I think you're right. Docbook would give us the widest range of choices for
publishing after it's done.

Can we use the wiki for ideas to start with? http://sfzwiki.opensourceschools.org

I've also just set up sfbook iteachnet org
(http://iteachnet.org/mailman/listinfo/sfbook for config stuff.)

Anyone interested is encouraged to sign up. Then we can post monthly progress
reports to everyone else. I will sign up those who have voiced interest so far.
