Hi :)
The new Getting Started Guide is nearly ready!  You can have a sneak preview at
Please let us know if anything appears to be wrong.  

The guide will appear on the proper wiki in a couple of days and then in the Lulu bookstore and  
maybe on the official LibreOffice website a few days after that.  Sorry i can't give precise 
release dates.  

Errr, please noticethat i have heavily edited Jean's email to hopefully make more sense to the 
Users List.  The original was written for the Docs Team.  Normally i would dare edit other people's 
post in lists but be aware that it's always possible.  

Regards from
Tom :)

A PDF of the full book is now on the ODFAuthors website. You do not
need a login to get to it and take a copy.

It is now time for final checking of the book, looking for glaring
errors, by which I mean things like this:
* Missing figures (blank spaces where figures should be)
* Bad page breaks (for example, big gaps at bottom of a page)

Please let the docs list (or this list)  know if you spot anything a bit wrong.

You are also welcome to suggest improvements etc, but they will be put
on the list for a later edition of the book, not incorporated into this one.

This is a good job for anyone, including total newcomers to the
project. You don't need to know anything about the program or have
good English skills; all you need is to be able to pay attention and
notice things like those listed above.  

If you are skilled enough to know what these following 2 things mean then please join the docs 
team (if you haven't already), and/or just let us know if there are problems with them
* Missing x-refs (message similar to "Error: reference not found")
* Wrong figure x-refs (pointing to the wrong figure) -- the most common problem

More than one person can check the file at the same time. People see
different things. Or you can start at the last chapter and work
forward, or in the middle... anything to get all chapters looked at by
someone in addition to me.

Thanks in advance!

I will also incorporate any corrections to factual errors that anyone
finds in the chapter files.
