Re: Linux Documentation E-Commerce Store Proposal From Talinda Incorporated
I sent this proposal out almost a month ago and have received no response.
Does anyone see a benefit to having hardcopies orderable/available of LDP
documents? What documents make sense to create hardcopy manuals of?
Please see the proposal below.
