Dear Ardour users,

we will be starting this book sprint tomorrow afternoon in Rotterdam. I 
didn't get a lot of replies from this list, so I wanted to post one more 
time. Specifically, we're looking for:

1) Ardour users who would be interested to help with one or more of the 
chapters we have outlined below. This could involve writing or making 

2) Ardour users who would be willing to proofread and correct chapters 
that are almost completed later in the week. Mainly this would involve 
seeing if the instructions in the tutorials are correct (perhaps by even 
following them in Ardour yourself) as well as looking at things like 
readability, consistency, spelling etc etc.

Please get in touch via email. I will try to be on #ardour some times as 
well, and there is also the #flossmanuals IRC channel lwhich we will use 
for communicating.

Hope to hear from some of you and best wishes!
