If you have news, events, articles, and editorials from in, around, and pertaining to Edmonton and its Linux community, then send it over to us
Who can contribute?
Anyone with an email address and something to report, say regarding, or of interest to the Linux community in Edmonton.
What can be contributed?
News reports, event announcements, relevant articles and pertinent editorials.
Contributions can be in any portable format (e.g.: HTML, text, PS, PDF), perhaps even LyX or LaTeX if you want the article to be available in multiple formats. You will need to send in your by-line and the piece or a link to it, include a publish-on date if applicable; anything else needed for the website (the stuff under layout in the Formats section) should be extractable from the piece itself.
Where do I send my contribution?
It will be helpful if the Subject: is indicative of what the material is about.
When should it be sent?
Best if done at least a couple of days before you want it published on the web.
You can count on a day for your submission to be noticed and acted upon, perhaps another day for the website to get updated. Longer if the Editor needs to chase down links, define jargon, etc.
It keeps the Linux community healthy.
Linux is a true grassroots collaboration, it should have grassroots reporting of what is going on in the community. Mailing lists such as ELUG's can serve this purpose, and are essential for discussions (ELN is not a forum), but mailing lists lack the focus you get from a source dedicated to reporting on issues relevant to the local community.
I hope that by offering a dedicated news source for the local community we can garner the attention of those who are not inclined to subscribe to a mailing list - your contributions will help to achieve this goal.

old and wise; if they are not technically proficient they are willing to
