(cc to SAC for their archive)

This is probably a question to the SAC but I don't subscribe to its list

I'd like to move forward with the Edu committees materials projects and
initiate our book projects. We have several in mind and some existing
projects may want to migrate to one place under OSGeo. I'm thinking
going back to LaTeX (LyX), thus the materials would be text + perhaps
binary images. Of course it can be project specific.

What should I do? I'm familiar with CVS on unix, and used it and SVN a
bit on windows. For this I'd like to start with windows (LyX for windows
looks good and windows works a bit better on my laptop) but that's only
a personal choice.

SVN isn't significantly different from CVS (just better). There are several
clients available (see at bottom of
GDF Hannover | Leistungen).

Is it possible to organize nightly builds so that there's a new PDF
available for download from some place?

That should be fairly easy once we have an idea where to host the
repository. I don't think that it should be on the CollabNet infrastructure
since we cannot implement cronjobs there to make nightly PDF builds.
Telascience.org might be a (interim) solution.


Anything else I should know/think about?
