I have seen a number of comments on Debian needing a book detailing things
like installation, configuration, and the likes.
What about getting a group of individuals together with the express intent of
coming up with something to suit these needs? I think that the group would
benefit by having a combination of both new and old users, that way the new
users could give accounts on what was/wasn't difficult to understand, while the
old users could assist in technical details.
Sure there are other books out there, but let's keep with the Debian uniqueness
and make it free. Let's put it into the distribution, ready to be printed.
We could also offer a printed version for a fee, but not $40 just what it would
take to print it, put it into a 3 ring binder, and ship it to the user. With a group of people willing to print, I think the demand could be met.
How bout it guys? Ya wanna see Debian go over the top? Then it is time to make
it more accessable to users and give new users a way to understand it a bit
