* Book compilation (olivier)
   + Started a master document
      + Each completed chapter has its "copyright" to "Contents (TOC)"
wrapped in a section
      + use a condition to hide the section: "book eq 1"
      + Variable "book" is defined in master document, when book=1,
chapter's copyright+TOC is hidden
   + Hit issue in displaying images from chapters on master
      + Cause: its a bug.
      + To overcome,  change image anchoring inside frame to paragraph
in chapters.
         + no big deal, except extensive task
         + changed, preface, ch2, ch4, and on going.

Discussion: (Dave, olivier)
    * Time release of books
        + "perfect is enemy of the good" (Dave)
        + "better something than nothing" (olivier)
        + Set a date for publication
        + deliver what is available
        + update timely with corrections/erratas
        + Book assembly easier with master document
        + Use of NextCloud + LOOL will improve file access and update
           + still need control on who is working on each file
    * Book authoring process
        + Revision of the revision of the revision does not work
           + very unproductive and not fun at all
           + Current LO track changes very hard to read
               + sometimes too fragmented or granular
        + better have highly skilled authors we trust to cut revision
        + Leave revision to time based erratas
            + Monthly or bi-monthly, or 1 errata per book release.
            + not connected to minor releases of the software (no
feature changes)
        + Published 6.n is draft 6.n+1
        + bring discussion to Doc ML.
