[Owasp-board] DOC Projects

Hello,

My vision to augment our document projects is to procure the services of 
a professional editorial service to manage our doc writing processes. 
Here is a note from my editor, just to give you an idea of the services 
they provide. Certainly, there are many others we can choose from. But I 
think we could outsource "basic development editing, project 
management/scheduling, copyediting/proofreading, composition (to 
pages)". This way the management, editing and scheduling of building one 
of our large doc projects is outsources to a neutral third party with 
this expertise, and the foundation volunteers can focus on what we do 
best : content.

I think this would go a long way in improving the maturity of our 
documentation projects.

Aloha,
Jim

Hi Jim --

We do a number of things through custom publications for some different 
companies (including IBM and others). Those are typically relationships 
where the company needs something published, we provide services from 
soup-to-nuts to just editing to just printing, and we work out some fee. 
A few questions, and I'll strike up a convo with our folks to see what 
they think...

·Are these guides that are online or print (or both)?

·How often are you revising?

·What pieces would you want: basic development editing, project 
management/scheduling, copyediting/proofreading, composition (to pages), 
printing?

Let me know your thoughts and we'll see what we can figure out!
