Abstract

Since 2013, Axel Beckert and I work on the Debian Package Management Book. Published under a Creative Commons license (CC-BY-SA), it is available for everyone via GitHub, and everyone can contribute to it, too. We give an insight view on writing this book, and which technologies we use. Writing this book is a big challenge. This includes both the preparation and the maintenance of the single output formats such as HTML, PDF, ePub, and MobiPocket as well as the printed version. We explain which complex technologies come into play, and which tools are useful for us to manage the content orderly, and to integrate the propositions and improvements of our readers. Currently, the book is available in German. You can read the book online from here: [http://book.dpmb.org/](http://book.dpmb.org/)
