The FLOSS Manuals Foundation

FLOSS Manuals is more than a collection of manuals about free and open source software, it is also the community. The contributors include designers, readers, writers, illustrators, free software fans, editors, artists, software developers, activists, and many others. Anyone can contribute to a manual – to fix a spelling mistake, add a more detailed explanation, write a new chapter, or start a whole new manual on a topic.

Our core aim is making it easy to maintain and contribute to manuals, text books, teaching materials by providing an easy to use interface for collaborating on the creation of texts about Free Software.

FLOSS Manuals was launched in 2007 to remedy the deficit of good free documentation about Free Software. Our strategy is to develop communities to produce high quality free manuals about Free Software in their own language.

Today we have more than 120 books in over 30 languages, and more than 3,000 contributors. In 2011 the FLOSS Manuals Foundation (FMF) was created to provide resources and support to all language community groups, start new language communities, and oversee the FM network.

FLOSS Manuals (FM) is a collection of different language communities that produce original documentation about Free Software. This site is the home for the FLOSS Manuals Foundation (FMF), which oversees and supports the general activities of the various language communities:
