Great Collection of Open Source Documentation

Documents, I don’t need a stinking Document

I came across an interesting post on this week from OStatic about a great document repository site for open source projects, FLOSS Manuals. I checked out the site and came across an amazing number of manuals in multiple languages for almost all the open source projects I could think of. Here is a description of what the site is:

FLOSS Manuals is a collection of manuals about free and open source software together with the tools used to create them and the community that uses those tools. They include authors, editors, artists, software developers, activists, and many others. There are manuals that explain how to install and use a range of free and open source softwares, about how to do things (like design) with open source software, and manuals about free culture services that use or support free software and formats.

In looking at the variety of manuals, I found one that I am actively reading, How To Bypass Internet Censorship. Other interesting manuals available, which are great reference tools:

This is a great community of people striving to create excellent reference materials for the world to leverage. If you have any open source product knowledge or are interested in editing or writing manuals, pay a visit to this site and start contributing today.

NOTE: I am not associated with this site at all but am a fan.
