We could start a BOF-session on this topic on the conference. Does anyone 
take this job?

It does not seem that we would be short of ideas or
material, but there are more to do than writing the
book. Unfortunately, someone (german-speaking) would
have to take an overarching responsibility for such a
project (Steffan?).

Why? IMHO the job of being a maintainer can also be done by someone 
natively speaking english. Anyhow, the translation of selected german 
papers into english could become the main problem.

Does anyone have experience from book-publishing?

Some, but only with german publishers.

I got contacts in a small, academic publishing company
and could ask them for advice, though it probably
would be better to enlist a German/international
publisher. If need be I could do the design (I'm an
illustrator by profession).


I still havnt got the message send to the german list
(got the adress wrong).
