The crowfunding campaign on Ulule ended on November 28th. With 673 supporters, we raised 24345 EUR. Of those, 14935 EUR have been put in the liberation fund and the rest corresponds to the various pre-orders and rewards offered.
This means that the translation will happen (we just started) but that the book is currently not going to be released under a free license. Don’t despair… As planned, the liberation campaign is carried on until the 25 K€ target is reached!
Instead of being hosted on Ulule, this permanent campaign is on the project website at debian-handbook.info/liberation/. Note that any contribution of 10 EUR or more means that you get a copy of the ebook as soon as it’s available (even if the liberation target is not reached).
Make sure to benefit from this as when the book will be available for sale, this will no longer be true. The contribution to the liberation will be whatever you accept to give on top of the book’s public price.
I saw your crowdfunding on Ulule. Is the french version covered by this campaign ?
Raphaël Hertzog says
Hi, no, the French book is not concerned by this liberation campaign because the rights are owned by Eyrolles and not by me.
