Correction: The books I offered are not "OD Fellowship" books. The
publisher's name is Friends of OpenDocument Inc., an Australia-
based group that handles money on behalf of several international
organisations that are not legal entities in themselves (including,
but not limited to, ODFellowship and OOoAuthors).
FoOD also publishes relevant books for individuals when requested.
J. David Eisenberg's "OASIS OpenDocument Essentials" is the first
of these books. What he does with his royalties is up to him.
The other two books are by OOoAuthors and have nothing to do with
the OD Fellowship. It's up to the team at OOoAuthors how any
proceeds from sales of their books are distributed. My impression
is that those proceeds will be spent on promoting OpenOffice.org.
Anyway, it will be difficult to determine what, if any, sales
result from people seeing the samples at the OOo booth at LWE or
any other event, unless there is a sudden spike in sales in the
early part of April.
Agreed. My interest is also to represent OOo the project and product
as being robust, interesting, popular.
I'd love to also see about other books that I can at the least
refer people to, and will be pointing to the Support page and
Documentation page for this purpose.
I hope someone will have time to update the Support page with
OOo2.0 books before LWE (issue 62488).
I'll ask website team and [EMAIL PROTECTED] and see if I can do it
this weekend. There are about 1/2 dozen people with access there.
