Ubuntu Manual: Call for Authors

The Ubuntu Manual Project is preparing for the 12.10 series.

If you haven’t heard about our project, it focuses in creating a comprehensive beginners manual for the Ubuntu operating system. The manual is written under an open source license and branded as “Getting Started with Ubuntu”.

The Ubuntu Manual is accessible via:

We have a firm base of contributors (authors, editors, translators) and we want more people to work with us, to make the 12.10 manual awesome.

The sections and chapters that are available for authors to write are:

  • Ubuntu Desktop
  • Working with Ubuntu
    • Viewing and editing photos
    • Reading and compositing mail
    • Browsing the web
    • Getting online
  • Learning More

People who are interested should check the openings page, and drop us a mail if there are any question: http://ubuntu-manual.org/jobs

For those who want to ask questions, get involved, or are just curious, I strongly recommend them to subscribe to our mailing list and send their mails there: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-manual

“Getting started with Ubuntu 12.10” is scheduled to be released late October, i.e together with the Ubuntu 12.10 release.

Thank you for your time !
