Hello, all! =20
I'm W. Curtis Preston, the author of Unix Backup & Recovery, from
O'Reilly & Associates. We're updating the book and expanding it's
scope, and I need help!
The updated book will include Unix, Windows & MacOS, and will
concentrate on how to do backups without buying commercial software.
The new working title is "Backup on a Budget." =20
I'm soliciting co-authors who can write chapters on different
technologies, and I want to include backuppc on that list. I recently
installed and was quite impressed with it, so I thought I'd come to the
developers group and ask for a volunteer.
The chapter just needs to be long enough to explain the basics of the
technology, why you would use it and what you would use it for, and how
to install it. It doesn't need to be as in depth as the online docs,
but can borrow heavily from the on-line docs. I'm really flexible here.
In the case of Amanda, for example, the Amanda chapter and the online
Amanda docs will be one and the same. However, your docs come in at 76
pages, which is really a bit much for this book. I'm thinking 15-20
pages or so.
What do you think, team?
