It looks to me like that company publishes lots of pdfs from around
the web: https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/sml
Is there a Creative Commons type license that would give the authors
control over such? And still give you guys free range to keep it up to
date as you are now doing? Authors being defined for legal purposes as
anyone with editing rights.
I see the web page served up versions as the last word on the subject,
and potentially out of date by the buildbots next build. This aspect of
the docs is IMNSHO, a huge advantage over any printed version which is
likely out of date right now. New bee's coming in for advice, should be
reminded of that.
I like dead tree docs, a lot, but I gave up reprinting the whole 700+
page manual about every two years because my copy was getting grease
stained and dog eared, not to mention it was already obsolete by the
time I had killed another tree.
At least my monitor doesn't get dog-eared. Cutting oils and swarf, yes.
I have a sheet of lexan over TLM's monitor because its dead behind the
machine. I have to clean it off 2 or 3x a year. That lexan is tough
stuff, I haven't scratched it yet in 6 or 8 years.
