Yes, I mean the book itself.
I am involved in Debian, where we go by a principle that code and
documentation must be Free not only in its "binary" (i.e. consumer) form
but also its source.
It is not satisfactory that some kind of "source" can be derived from
the "binary" (e.g. reverse engineering, screen-scraping etc.) but that
the preferred source format of the authors is made available.
By no means to I mean to impose this principle must apply to this book.
But I am curious _if_ it does apply, because then I have the opportunity
of getting the book included with Debian, and that way also included
with Skolelinux, which I am sure would be quite appreciated and used.
Hope that makes sense.
