Thanks for the reply to the test.
I made because I wanted to check with you what is the current situation
with the bibliotecha documentation.
Today I received an email from a person who was trying to install
bibliotecha and was struggle to use minibian - which hasn't seen any
releases in past 2 years - and I think we all moved to raspbian lite
(stable). Which was my suggestion to her and seemed to work.
Now my questions:
Is the current location of the documentation
If so can we remove the gitlab wiki and place a link to
In the NOO documentation the Pre-installation section does not mention
anything about sshing onto the Pi or how to enable ssh on Raspbian
(which is not enabled by default)
* wouldn't that addition be helpful for those unfamiliar with UNIX based
* how can the documentation be edited?
How shall we best advertise the NOO Bibliotecha manual in
bibliotecha.info? Is there an introductory text to NOO Bibliotecha
manual that can be used?
Sorry for the long row of question, but think it is important to unify
all the information/documentation
We'd like to collect some feedback from the Bibliotecha
<https://bibliotecha.info/> community in regards to the project. Here
<https://framaforms.org/bibliotecha-feedback-1558904004> you can find a
short form we made for that purpose.
Since launching Bibliotecha as a project in 2013 many things changed, for
one, some of the initial contributors founded and joined Varia
<https://vvvvvvaria.org/>. This is a artist-run initiative for developing
collective approaches to everyday technology. Within the context of Varia
we chose to make more time for maintaining some of the earlier collective
projects, including Bibliotecha. As time goes by these collective
multi-author projects tend slip out of sight as it becomes difficult for
individuals to take ownership and give the project the care it deserves. As
part of this effort we want to (partly) re-write and update the software
stack. This with the aim to improve documentation for installation and
usage, ease the facilitate longer term maintenance and reach out more to
Bibliotecha is a voluntary community project, a framework to facilitate the
local distribution of digital publications within a small community.This
form aims to collect some user feedback from people involved in some way
with the Bibliotecha project. Bibliotecha is a framework to facilitate the
local distribution of digital publications within a small community. It
relies on a microcomputer running open-source software to serve books over
a local wifi hotspot. Using the browser to connect to the library one can
retrieve or donate texts. Bibliotecha proposes an alternative model of
distribution of digital texts that allows specific communities to form and
share their own collections.
If you don't feel like filling in text and feel like just talking, we can
do a teleconference (skype, etc.?)
Thanks for taking the time to fill it in,
