Hello artemyev, the book is now available. Get it from http://debian-handbook.info...
where i could get updated status on this book project? i'm really impatient to get my copy already! :)
I live in Maine in the USA. Times are hard with finances here but I have to express my gratitude and appreciation for what you all do.
I am a debian user for three years now and it has changed my life. The preview chapters have shown me things I still don't know about.
Its hard to get great source information with translation.
With the release of the sample chapter (see http://debian-handbook.info...), we have entered the last step of this campaign.
Thank you everybody, you have been awesome. But it's not finished yet, there's less than 10 days left to reach 100% for the liberation fund. Feel free to use the free chapter to convince other persons to join the movement to get this book freed!

I offered to assist with translation. I am both, a Debian user, AND, a professional translator of French to English (as well as Spanish and Portuguese to English see baldwinlinguas.com ). Since Debian and other FOSS tools have paid my rent and fed my family for over a decade, it seems appropriate, to me.
Thank you everybody, we reached the first target today. Keep up the good work promoting the project, we still have to convince many persons to support the project to ensure the liberation fund reaches its goal of 25 K€.
See http://debian-handbook.info... for some more information.
Excellente idée, j'ai maximisé mon don pour la libération du livre. Bonne chance et bon courage!
I liked the idea of this book enough that I bought a copy in French of the Lenny edition. Both of the authors are extremely capable: as a long time Debian user and developer I was very impressed and learnt quite a lot I should already have known :)
Any new edition will be equally good: the prospect of an English translation means that I can confidently recommend a well written book specifically on Debian to fellow system administrators. This is very much needed
Gregoire, we'll make sure anyone who contributed at least 5 EUR to the liberation fund gets a copy of the ebook even if the liberation target is not reached.
Stupid question: if I pledge X€, all contributing to the liberation fund and then the base target is reached but not the liberation target, what happends ?
keep great work :-)
Matteo, yes, exactly!
Hi, just to be perfectly clear: if I donate € X and choose no reward, all of those X Euro will go for the translation and liberation of the Book, right?
Merci pour votre engagement dans le projet.
Thank you everybody, it's great to see you all supporting this project! Keep sharing the news, we're not yet done...
Enhorabuena y gracias, Raphael, por tu trabajo y entrega a "nuestra" Debian. Espero que mi granito de arena ayude al éxito de la versión inglesa de tu libro.
I have been a debian user for several years. It will be a great plus to have the Admin book available in English. Thank you.
Good luck with the project, can't wait to read the book.
I hope your project succeeds :-)
Bonne chance et vive debian
