How does this compare to the Ubuntu Manual project?
And is this a published book to buy or a download? what's the license on
the material, is it re-distributable?
Most of the people in this Local Community are not experts, they're
normal computer users. We have a small selection of professional
computer users but mostly the high handed geeks end up in user groups
like the BLU and programming groups.
Advocacy, education and support has far more needs than just computer
know-how. Although to be fair it does help when it comes to support.
