"The Open Source Writers Group (http://www.oswg.org) has been busy in recent weeks, and is pleased to announce that a number of documents have been added to and updated in its documentation set. These documents include:

  • GCC HOWTO - Dan Barlow (in need of a new maintainer)
  • Lilo mini-HOWTO - Cameron Spitzer and Alessandro Rubini
  • RPM HOWTO - Donnie Barnes
  • "The Risks of Closed Source Computing" - Alan Cox
  • "An Introduction to SCSI Drivers" - Alan Cox
  • "Cathedrals, Bazaars, and Town Councils" - Alan Cox

The OSWG is a community project whose primary goal is to improve the overall quality and quantity of free open-source and open-content documentation. All OSWG activities are related to this primary goal.

In addition to these updates, the OSWG has completed the setup of a CVS system for documentation and the creation of scripts that automatically generate all documents daily. This system ensures that the documentation available through the website reflects the most recent documentation additions and changes. Note also that this system is open and available to anyone working on open-source or open-content documentation. Contact editor@oswg.org for details."
