on-demand printing of Open Source manuals

FLOSS Manuals produces high quality collaboratively authored manuals about how to use free software.

Within this project FLOSS Manuals integrates the content creation platform with Print on Demand services. This will enable collaborative authoring of manuals online, and the output directly to book form available for purchase via a print on demand service.

The project wil result in a platform allowing:

  • To extend our available output formats. We currently enable output to html, basic pdf, and we have inclusion api. However its very necessary to extend this to output to docbook, man pages, and the forthcoming new scribus file format.
  • To tie in manual production and remixing to a print on demand service.
  • To build RSS subscription services for manuals.
