+ How to turn the documentation job fun and thrilling?
      Jean: I've never found a good answer.
           + no need to do the whole chapter
           + need to indicate up to where it was updated
           + people don't notice the things to add.
           + Most people that want to help don't know the software
               +Know more than the average
      Leo: Chapters too big to work with
           +less pages
      Jean: May be we have to translate from other lang to English

      + get more authors?

      + Author's peer/community recognition
         Leo: Contributor of the month
              + like in Pootle

              + Combine with marketing
              + spread the word,
              + people behind the books, like devs

      + Narrow gap between book release date and software release date
         Leo: On Getting Started (GS) what to be changed?
              Someone to flag what to change and add
              Jean: who is going to do it?
              Olivier: not every new feature will do to GS.
              Leo: On next version (6) rethink on what to write
              about, rework the text
                  + start the new version right after the feature is
              Jean: People want to see the sw before writing about.

      + Lowering author's entry barriers
          Leo: workload: split the chapters
               or split the tasks: text, screen capture, revisions.
