Debian gurus Raphael Hertzog and Roland Mas, are looking to raise money to fund the translation of their seminal Debian book “Cahiers de l’Admin Debian Squeeze” into English. The pair have set up a crowdfunding campaign here to finance the three-month task of translating the book’s 450 pages.
Looking to raise a very modest €15,000 to finance the task, Hertzog has also pledged that if the sum rises to €25,000, the book can be fully ‘liberated’ and published under the GPL-2+ and CC-BY-SA 3.0 Licenses. Supporters of the project can select a reward, ranging from a copy of the ebook or a paperback to dinner with the authors. “A nice way to get you hooked up as a new Debian contributor,” writes Hertzog.
