Reviewers are highly in demand, yet we recently had the joy of welcoming a few. They mysteriously appeared out of nowhere to offer their much-needed services to our project. One of those new-comers is Jamie Patterson. Not that long ago, he found the TLDP web site, while looking for Linux documentation. He must have approved of our system, because he volunteered as a reviewer: "I wanted to help improve and build on the foundation blocks of the ever-expanding Linux Community."
Jamie reviews for content suitability, checks grammar and spelling and, probably the most important thing: ease of reading. Tabatha, our head-reviewer, thinks he's one of the most faithful reviewers she works with. However devoted, Jamie can make his voice heard. As his colleagues say, in an appreciative tone of voice: "He's a little outspoken in his comments."
Jamie joined the project only recently, but is already training other reviewers. Jamie is thirteen years old. We're told he does a good job.
We also want to welcome the rest of the flock, among others:
As David Lawyer states, the current LDP license contains a loophole.
Therefor, Rick Moen wrote a proposal for a new license which is now being discussed. Rick did quite some research on the subject of licensing.
The sponsorship thread started last week evolved into a discussion about whether is right to document non-free software, even if it runs on Linux. However, it was generally agreed that we would have to drop a lot of documents if we were going to be that fierce about the subject.
The Linux Documentation Project (TLDP) is working on developing free, high quality documentation for the GNU/Linux operating system. If you want to help TLDP, consider joining <email@example.com>.
Help us create this newsletter. We need volunteers who follow the community (mailing lists, newsgroups, web channels) and report events related to free software documentation. Write to us at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
