I hereby dub Manuel DocBook a GNU manual.

Please don't forget to mention prominently in the text that it is a
GNU manual.

The new-gnu people will mail you a file, maintain.text, which
describes a lot of procedures for GNU maintainers.  Some of it is
relevant only for programs, but please follow the aspects that make
sense for a manual.

The file also describes who you can ask for various kinds of support
or advice.  If you encounter a situation where it isn't clear what to
do, you can also ask address@hidden, which is a list of a few other
GNU maintainers who have offered to answer questions for new

They will also add you to the gnu-prog mailing list, a moderated list
for announcements to GNU maintainers.  They will also add you to the
gnu-prog-disc list, which can be used for discussion among GNU
maintainers, but whether to stay on the list is up to you.

Would you like to make the distribution site?
If so, please tell address@hidden when you have
a version to release.  If you need, we can make an acct for
you on so you can install new versions.

Could you please write some web pages about the manual, to put on  The main web site for a GNU package should be on, not just a link to elsewhere.  Please follow the style
guidelines in, and
send the pages to address@hidden when you are done.

We invite you to put the CVS repository on for
both the program and its web pages.  This repository supports the
sourceforge features through the alias  Using
subversions makes it easy to update the web pages, since they can be
checked out automatically ont; you just have to install
updates using CVS.  Using subversions will also help the GNU Project.
To set this up, visit

Please also write an entry or a change for the page, and mail that to
address@hidden also.  Note that we don't want to talk about
proprietary software, so if you have worked on any, please don't
mention it here.  Your entry can include a link to your home page
provided it fits our usual criteria for what we link to.

Please see if your manual can fit into some entry in our Free Software
Directory.  Please contact address@hidden for more info about this.

Please talk with address@hidden about creating the mailing lists that
you need, if any.

Please mail an announcement to address@hidden about the existence of
the manual, either when it is released, or now if it is already
released.  Include a brief description so people can tell whether they
are interested in reading it it.  Mention the web pages on
and say where to get th emanual by ftp.

new-gnu people, could you please enter Philippe Martin in
gnuorg/maintainers, add him to the gnu-prog lists, and send him a copy
of maintain.text?
