We had a proposal to put together a book from existing writings by
oekonux members, mainly in German (see
http://www.oekonux.de/texte/index.html for many of them). However,
we have a shortage of people to translate from German to English (or
German to Spanish!) so work is going very slowly. Do you read German?

This list has not had much traffic of late, so I thought I'd drop
the list a line so we all know it's still working :-)
I had promised to set up a CVS repository for the book, I'm half way
to setting up a subversion  repository -- it has command line tools
the same as CVS  but it is more interesting to play with since
it's the planned replacement for CVS, and one point of Oekonux is to
have some fun and subversion is a new toy!
Slashdot is running a story on the US army's planned use of Linux
and it had generated a more-interesting-than-usual /. discussion
with people suggesting free stuff like this:
How about $26 billion for global no-cost healthcare and food?
I found most of the discussion pretty depressing, actually. Too many 'we
are the ruling nation' assumptions.
As for being 'quiet in here', I've noticed that traffic on most of the
free software lists I'm on that aren't purely technical has dropped quite
drastically recently. Is it the war?
