We're getting very close.
I'd like to propose the following release plan.
* WED, 2359 EDT. Content freeze. No more new content. Tag all textbook
wiki pages "0.8-FREEZE" in the summary field.
* THU. Final edits by a core team: copyediting, grammar, transitions,
voice, working together all day on #teachingopensource. At the conclusion
of this final edit, tag pages 0.8-FINALEDIT.
* FRI. Docbook conversion and any required minor format corrections. At
the conclusion of this process, tag pages 0.8-RELEASE. Create a
"0.8-RELEASE" wiki page that points to the versions of the pages with the
release tag, so that we've got both "release" and "head" identified on the
* MON. Run docbook branch. Check docbook work into SVN. Begin to
advertise the textbook. Watch Tim Budd go. Get ready to edit everything
in sight. :)
Chris, Karsten, can you have your chapter done by 2359 Wed nite?
Educational materials should be high-quality, collaborative, and free.
