Mary L. Kuss announced that the UK Mirror Service will be transformed into the JISC Mirror Service during summer holidays. Eduserv, the new responsibles, have a brief synopsis of the changes here.
David Gonzalez changed the URL of his Columbian mirror http://www.skynetbbs.org/LDP/ to http://www.tuxcafe.com/LDP/.
New mirror sites:
Mirror-maintainers: please note that you can replace the "LDP Site Sponsor" logo on the first page with your own.
Ever since the latest round of innovations at TLDP, things are moving. We'd like to put the In Progress Page in the spotlight this week. Here you can find a list of the documents that are proposed and currently being worked on, as well as a list of those that have already been accepted for review and that are undergoing a language or technical review.
We are always looking for reviewers, and even if you are not the technical type of person, you can help in various ways. Interested in contributing? Mail Emma Jane or Tabatha, our Review Coordinators, they can tell you how you can make yourself useful.
You could meet some of our staff at the Libre Software Meeting in Bordeaux, which was held from the 6th to the 10th of July. The first pictures are floating in, including mad Canadians supporting the European resistance to software patents. This is Emma Jane, possibly jealous that she didn't go to Brussels to get herself such a nice yellow T-shirt ;-)
<email@example.com> has seen a very interesting discussion about the various issues involved in co-operation between the active French HOWTO translation effort and The LDP. The discussion also petered out into another thread about licensing issues.
Machtelt Garrels initiated a discussion for changing The LDP volunteer list. A discussion about maintaining the list ensued, and people went on to discuss the issues in using a Wiki for some parts of The LDP website.
Saqib Ali suggested the use of a blog for collecting feedback on proposed documents. He set up http://tools.tldp.org/blog/ for the same and listed several XML editors. Emma Jane Hogbin indicated that the process outlined in the LDP Author Guide was sufficient for proposals and was in favor of 'canning' the blog.
