multcolib has Ambient Findability and Art of Project Management on-order now.


All the specific suggestions are nice, but can we discuss a more structural approach?

I'd like to see a breakdown of what "classes" of volunteers and programs we want to have books available for.

I will post off the top of my head, and hopefully others will refine. Let's try to get a good broad selection that covers these folks.Then we can cross-reference with the O'Reilly and No Starch catalogs.

People categories:

  • Total newbies (Linux for Beginners)
  • Coders
  • Distro developers

Software categories:

  • Books documenting software that is in the Freekbox 3 distro (and that Tech Support supports.)
    • Debian GNU/Linux, KDE (and Gnome?), OpenOffice, Firefox, Thunderbird, The Gimp. Others?
  • Books documenting software or technologies that we use for Free Geek infrastructure.
    • Apache, PHP, MySQL/PostgreSQL, MediaWiki, RT, SVN, Mailman, Courier, Postfix, Others? (see Software Overview.)
