>> Hi folks,
>> I'd like to introduce you to Felicity Brand, a technical writer who
>> lives in Melbourne, Australia. She is interested in participating in
>> SeasonOfDocs and learning about Open Source practices. She expects to
>> have some spare time to get involved as a volunteer, but not enough to
>> take on the leading role we are looking for in the paid writer. (She is
>> also juggling being a mother and contracting on the side.)
>> I've suggested she might want to look at reviewing all our OSGeoLive
>> Quickstarts (and maybe Project Overviews) from a tech writer's
>> perspective, with eye to bring a greater level of maturity and
>> consistency between these Quickstarts, and maybe improve the templates
>> we are using along the way. This could be a stepping stone into helping
>> mentor techies from each project to keep their Quickstarts up to date,
>> and helping techies write new Quickstarts.
>> Hi Felicity,
>> I suggest doing the following:
>> * Subscribe to these osgeolive and seasonofdocs email lists:
>> ** https://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/osgeolive

>> * Reply to this email and introduce yourself to the lists. (Who are you,
>> what would you like to do with Open Source docs?)
>> * Add your name to
>> (you will need to apply for wiki access. Tell me once you have applied,
>> and I will process).
>> * Look at OSGeoLive Quickstarts:
>> * Download and run OSGeoLive, probably in a Virtual Machine:
>> * Setup your documentation development environment: Follow links from
>> (Ask questions, these howtos could be improved)
>> * Keep in touch and as questions as you go
>> * Good luck and welcome.
