I am so glad that we managed to complete this project. Roland and I have spent countless hours on this book since December, both for the translation itself and also for all the things that we tend to forget: a nice book cover, a great book layout for the print version, coordinating the work of reviewers, registering as an editor to get an ISBN, etc. I think I will come back to this in a future article because some parts of the story are interesting.
In the mean time, enjoy the DFSG-free Debian Administrator’s Handbook:
- get it from unstable with
apt-get install debian-handbook;
- browse the online version;
- get the paperback or the ebook (available as PDF, EPUB, MOBI);
- grab the sources with
git clone git://anonscm.debian.org/debian-handbook/debian-handbook.gitand contribute a translation
Check out the official announce (there’s a discount for early buyers of the paperback).
