The document looks really good and professional. I will read it in its entirety later tonight.

We JUST set up the structure in SVN (subversion) for the various guides we need for
OpenCobol. Your getting started would make a great addition to our Installation Guide.
It will have instructions on how to install in several Operating Systems including via
package management and compiling.

So with that I am curious if you would be willing to release this under the GNU FDL 1.2
or later?

Also if so would you be interested in committing to the Add 1 Repository. We've got
a growing base of code there. Some of it is libraries, and others are apps. If you're
willing just shoot me an email.

Kind Regards

::::::::NOTE IMPORTANT::::::::::
There has been some confusion as to the time. I believe this is because the United States uses Daylight Savings Time. On top of this the Government recently extended the dates that EDT (eastern daylight time) would run. So to be sure that you make it at 9am Eastern, I have this link:

That shows the time in New York City at the moment of viewing. It also explains the current UTC offset for the Eastern Zone in the United States. Simply compare the current time that site states, with your current time and you will know how far off we are from you.

We're there all of the time, even when we do not have a meeting. Stop on by for Open Cobol Support and chat.
