Help us update the Firefox manual to 3.6!

As you might remember, the SUMO and FLOSS Manuals communities worked together last spring to write a complete manual for Firefox.  Our friend Janet Swisher from FLOSS Manuals wrote to tell us that on Sunday, it’s time to upgrade it for Firefox 3.6! To quote Janet’s post in the SUMO contributors forum:

I’m putting together a mini-sprint to update the book for Firefox 3.6. The face-to-face part of the sprint will be held in Austin, Texas, the day after the Texas Linux Fest, on Sunday, April 11th, from 11am to 4pm Central US time (OTC-6). Sorry for the short notice — this was a last-minute idea.

Remote contributors are welcome and encouraged. So please join us if you have time and interest, whatever time you can spare. We’ll be on #flossmanuals (This channel is embedded in the flossmanuals site, but you can use any IRC client you like.)

How to help:

  1. Register for a FLOSS Manuals login, if you don’t already have one.
  2. Go to the Write section for Firefox.
  3. Pick a chapter that you want to update and click the “edit” link.

Please let me know if you’re planning to join in. If you’re able to join us physically in Austin, contact me and I’ll let you know where to find us.

If you have some time to spare, please help make this manual updated and ready for 3.6!
