You are encouraged (HIGHLY) to contribute your thoughts, ideas, writing, expertise, critique, and just about anything.

Help improve this telling of how to know and implement the open source way.

A specific goal of this book is to have a community write about community.

This wiki is the upstream for the book and is where all of the collaboration on writing takes place. We can then form wiki-specific processes over time within the authoring community. That process is written up in Contributing to The Open Source Way.

A second step is the conversion of the content to DocBook XML for publication. That process is written up in Converting to DocBook XML.

The DocBook XML source is kept in a git repository at http://fedorahosted.org/tosw . Details on getting accessing, using, and contributing to that repository are in Contributing to The Open Source Way and Using git repository.
