LDP Weekly News

by David Merrill

An Apology

I'd like to apologize to the authors whose updates I accidentally omitted from the weekly update of the 2002-02-12. That week's missing updates are now listed correctly. See that issue of the LDPWN for corrected information and more updates.

Development Planning

I proposed a rather ambitious change to our production systems, see my home page to read the design notes. The Scoop code lets you make comments if you register, so feel free to comment.

I'm seeking feedback. This is a proposal only at this point, so now's the time for staff and authors to address any concerns.

These documents have been abandoned by their maintainers and many of them have not been updated in some time. If you're willing to become the maintainer for one of them, please join the LDP discussion list at and post a message indicating your interest.

About the LDP

The Linux Documentation Project is developing free, high quality documentation for the GNU/Linux operating system. This includes the creation of HOWTOs and Guides, and collaboration with other documentation groups.

If you've always wanted to help Linux reach Total World Domination(tm), but you're not a programmer, there's still something you can do. Help the LDP!

The LDP keeps a page of resources for authors at Contributions are always welcome.
