Subject: WWW: Issue #17 of Georg's Brave GNU World, the monthly GNU forum has been released.

Hi !

Issue #17 of the column is now online and it can - as usual - be found on the GNU Webpage and its mirrors. Otherwise just follow the links at the end of this posting.

Georg's Brave GNU World is a monthly column which is being released simultaneously in five languages (English, German, French, Japanese and Spanish) on the web and printed in the German "Linux-Magazin" as well as the "Linux Magazine France." This makes it the monthly column with the widest distribution worldwide as far as I know.

If you would like to receive mail about new issues directly, you can subscribe to the "Brave GNU World" announcement mailinglist. Just send mail to with "subscribe" in the *body*. The mailinglist is only for announcements that are related to the "Brave GNU World" and is of very low volume (between 1 and 2 mails a month).

The 17th issue covers the following topics:

 * France and Free Software     (some sad & good news about the
                                 political situation in france)

 * e:doc                        (a very interesting GUI based text

 * GNU Parted                   (managing partitions & imaging disks)

 * Direct GNU Sponsoring        (about the funding of Free Software)

 * Why Texinfo?                 (why should the average user make use
                                 of GNU Texinfo?)

 * Forging of the Copyright?    (why it is very unlikely for a
                                 developer to forge a copyright)
This column intends to provide a forum for all GNU maintainers, friends and associates and I am always open to suggestions. So if you

* have questions about the GNU Project that might be of general interest

* have a GNU Project and would like to improve its profile

* would like to start a GNU Project you are looking for people to start it with

* think something doesn't get the publicity it deserves

* would like to see something made public

send mail to:

"Brave GNU World column@gnu.org"

This column is for everyone with an interest in Free Software, so don´t hesitate to contact me if your project is under the GPL/LGPL and you´d like to see it introduced here.
