I will have to check out the DITA standard.
I have been looking at the fedora (not Linux distro) repository server
www.fedora.info Will try to get it installed today. It is a web service
and doesn't have an integrated GUI. I like this because it can
conceivably grow w/ the repository and not be limited by the gui
Apparently, people most often use Fez as the web-based front-end for
Does anyone in library-land you have much experience w/ either Fez or
fedora? I would really appreciate your comments.
I hope to integrate fedora w/ Moodle though I don't know how difficult
this will be.
The government is really keen right now on an "elibrary" perhaps more
keen than our learning activities we are doing in Squeak.
