LDP Weekly News

"Introduction to..." Documents

This week we've created a new document category at the LDP, beginning with five documents from Jenn Vesperman of LinuxChix. Jenn's documents are introductions to basic computing subjects, and unlike most LDP documents they are not unique to Linux. In fact, they do not cover the details of any operating system or application, but instead they focus on the underlying concepts. They should be very helpful for people who are newbies not only to Linux but to computing itself. We hope to publish more documents like these in the future.

These documents are listed at

Unmaintained Documents

These documents have been abandoned by their maintainers and many of them have not been updated in some time. If you're willing to become the maintainer for one of them, please join the LDP discussion list at and post a message indicating your interest.

About the LDP

The Linux Documentation Project is developing free, high quality documentation for the GNU/Linux operating system. This includes the creation of HOWTOs and Guides, and collaboration with other documentation groups.

If you've always wanted to help Linux reach Total World Domination(tm), but you're not a programmer, there's still something you can do. Help the LDP!

The LDP keeps a page of resources for authors at Contributions are always welcome.
