At Erlang-Projects, we have been doing some marketing-oriented  
documentation.
Those documents are in French, and should be translated into other  
languages. We need help for that.

You can have a look at the material here:

   http://www.erlang-projects.org/Public/about_us/dossier_de_presentat/view

We have tested this material during Linux Solutions 2004 in January and  
this is working very well for communication toward people that never heard  
of Erlang.

This is flashy but will not replace technical documentation. Regarding  
those aspects, generalisation of edoc use will help.

I agree. we could extend our "promotionnal materials" with esmb too. I can  
do it in French as I did for Linux Solutions, but I need to play with a  
before ...

On another side, I am working since months on a platform for  
Erlang-projects to publish coordinate and documents projects. This is  
something like Sourceforge but does not require CVS hosting of the project  
to be done on the web site. It can be done on Sourceforge or Savannah or  
whatever.
The project is called Metafrog and I will set up the alpha website in less  
than one month now. It could be publish but still contains some annoying  
bug that I want to squeeze before larger use.
This will be the platform use by our association Erlang-projects and would  
help with Erlang promotion. The site is based on Yaws and this will be  
another good example of real life site using this technology.

I think this is going in the right direction. If you want to help, please  
do not hesitate to join us.
