as the subject says: There is now a HTML version of Lessons for Lizards available:

I don't consider the contents nor the layout as finished. See the Jobs description page how *you* can contribute:

Have fun and happy new year, :-)

I didn't follow LfL very close by lack of time, but find the thing quite interesting.

I wonder how one can participate occasionally (that is not in any job listed :-), for example giving some clues or some debugging.

For example, I just tried the "usb boot device" page and found some (little) lacks and tried it fully to see one of my mother board don't boot, when an other do.

so we need some way to exchange from editors to readers and vice-versa.

We already discussed this for a very long time on the LDP mailing list, so I know the question is hard to fix.

In our system I would propose the following solution:

* open a (media) wiki - or a special namespace on opensuse one.

* write a page on the wiki for any LfL subject. Make this page read only (writing only for the author). So writing the page should be quite simple (writing a docbook backend to mediawiki, or simply slightly modifying the html display).

* open only to the writing the discussion page. Advertise the "+" use for better reading (eventually edit the style sheet)

as so, the author of the page could edit -or don't at his will- the page. The readers could add some comments, usefull but may be not worth writing to a paper book.

as an example, like previously said, the author of the usb boot page could add a "cd sylinux... before cp msb.bin..., think it better _not_ to use a valid /dev/sdX name, just in case the user makes a copy paste including the final <RC> of the line (easy to do :-(). But saying that this don't works with the ASUS A7N8X mobo may not be worth writing in the core of the article, but worth to be said on the wiki...
