Let your audience do your PR. They're pleasantly biased and decidedly not you.

A bit of wisdom from Rands that applies to communities and contributions: they are pleasantly biased and decidedly not you.

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 . Details on getting accessing, using, and contributing to that repository are in Contributing to The Open Source Way and Using git repository.
