FLOSS Manuals OpenMind FLOSS Manuals OpenMind Presentation Transcript

    • FLOSS Manuals
    • quality documentation for free open source software
    • OpenMind lightning talks
    • Tampere, 30.09.09
    • Tomi Toivio, open source coordinator, m-cult
    • FLOSS Manuals is a documentation wiki for free and open source software.
    • FLOSS Manuals offers free manuals published under the GPL license.
    • The original version was in English, currently we also have Finnish, Farsi and Dutch localisations.
    What is FLOSS Manuals?
    • Ideally the software documentation is written by people who are close to the skill level of the end-users.
    • Everything should be explained to a person who does not understand computer science.
    • FLOSS Manuals is building a bridge between the software and its potential users.
    Need for documentation
    • It is not enough to just translate a manual, it has to be constantly updated, expanded and localised to fit the local culture.
    • We are going to create workshops with schools, citizen media centers, and various user communities.
    • The aim of this is to bring new users and writers to the FLOSS community.
    Building a community of users and writers
    • Thank you!
