Hi Jacques,

I have tried to set up Booktype locally, but not succeeded, I don't have a server on the net

Is there anyone on this list, that could figure out how to install Booktype locally, then create a document telling us how to do it
or has a server we can host Booktype on, for us to start things

The reason I tried to set up Booktype locally, was so that I could learn how to use the software, and for people who don't have internet or lots of bandwidth ( schools )
Also to have some Booksprints ( http://www.booksprints.net/about/ ), which I would like a server in the room

I would say Booktype looks like a good idea.

Tried out the demo and it's easy to use, has collaborating options and is break proof because of version control. Only problems would be no spell checker built in and no offline use but we can work around that.

To me if we want lots of people to contribute then we have to make the system as easy to use as possible.
