- how about ConTeXt future (why it is not open source?)
Well, ConTeXt is regarded as opensource.
OK, probably I looked at this file too long ago. I agree ConTeXt is now Open source.
But as Open Source, I also (by mistake) mean a SourceForge projet
- an **unique** starting URL.
- dated version would be available,
- current official documentation (I didn't mean "documentationsssssssssss")
- access (via links) to to any other information (pragma, wiki, ...)
- which/where is the reference documentation (don't reply with some recursive answer!)
Hmm, the problem is that the documentation is* notoriously outdated and incomplete.
But I think the "ConTeXt - the manual" is rather good though incomplete.
Yes I agree that "ConTeXt - the manual" is **the** currently reference manual. As such, it should probably be a more or less maintained an uptodate (but not as other said "uptodate" context documents :-) version.
- how many euro poeple would pay for a reference ConTeXt book?
You mean a printed version of the revised/enhanced "ConTeXt - a manual"?
I know that it's a big work to maintain such a documentation, and probably (?), even Hans should eat some food (and sleep) from time to time! So if this work could be sell as a "ConTeXt book".
I think it could make a great difference for peoples who hesitate to switch from LaTeX to ConTeXt : no book available for now!
This book could be reedited perhaps every 2 years, and updates (and perhaps the book itself ?) could be made available on the web.
I agree there is much less ConText user than LaTeX user, but:
- this book whould be the only ConTeXt book available, so it should be easy to sell,
- the fact that there is a ConTeXt book should make ConTeXt more attractive (as for a SourceForge projet)
