Your organization may be interested in the Linux Brochure Project hosted on
SourceForge. This project was developed because the Victoria Linux User
Group (VLUG) wanted to produce their brochure using open source tools rather
than proprietary ones.  We registered it at SourceForge so that any Linux
LUG and other advocacy groups could use the software to produce their own
brochure. This project has been written up by LWN

See below for project details.

Barbara Irwin
Publicity Coordinator, VLUG


The Linux Brochure Project (LBP) is GPLed data and software which is used to
document key Linux information in a standard-size brochure (two sides of a
single letter-sized or A4 sheet of paper that is Z-folded into the six
mini-pages of the brochure).

Four key features of this project make it an excellent advocacy and
publicity tool for LUGS and Linux organizations: 1) the project data and
software are GPLed; 2) all software tools used to build the LBP brochures
are open source; 3) the brochure can be customized to fit individual
requirements of LUGs and other Linux organizations; and 4) the software
produces an attractive brochure.

Currently there are two versions of the brochure -- a "Linus" version, which
features famous quotes from Linus and a VLUG version, which has been adopted
as the Victoria Linux Users Group official brochure. We encourage
contributions of customized versions of the LBP brochure so ultimately there
will be a suite of brochures from around the world.  Looking forward to
receiving your version!  :-)

The first stable version, 1.0.0, was released on October 5, 2003. Version
1.1.0 was released on October 11, 2003 to provide the option of printing the
brochure on A4 size paper. This new feature will allow the wider global
Linux community full access to this project as well.
