OSWG Documentation Projects
The following is a list of Open Source documentation projects that have been initiated by members of the Open Source Writers Group.
OSWG Man Page Project
If you are interested in volunteering to help with one of these projects, email the contact person directly.
The Man Page Project is an attempt to start filling in some of the "blanks" that currently exist in Linux documentation. As many of you know, man pages are the first place most people turn when trying to learn how to use a new program or command. Unfortunately, there are many programs provided with Linux distributions that do not have accompanying man pages.
Linux for Starters (working title)
Linux for Starters is currently in the early stages of planning. This project will be added to the site in the near future.
Migrating from Windows to Linux (working title)
This project is currently in the early stages of planning. Further information about this project will be added to the site in the near future.
OSWG Style Guide (working title)
The Style Guide project will create a guide to consistent spelling, grammar, and word usage for OSWG members to consult when creating documentation.
Non-Condescending Guide to Linux for New Users (working title)
The Guide to Linux for New Users is a project that has a goal of producing a book that will explain Linux to new users without overwhelming them with the details and yet without making the mistake of treating ignorance as stupidity.
Open Source Documentation Index (working title)
This project is currently in the early stages of planning. Further details will be posted to the site as they become available.
