[maemo-users] Training material .tex sources

Thanks for your reply, Jarmo

It appears to me that the document margins are too large. The side
margins are about 20% of the document, so if you print, lets say, 200
pages of PDF documentation, your are wasting a big amount of paper.

If you take a look at this
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn-book.pdf (Subversion's Red
Book), I think they have their margins at about 12% of the page.

Would you release the latex source for this version (Diablo) or would
it be just for Freemantle? And would it be the estimated release time?

Depending on that, I wouldn't mind to stick to this PDFs, without
printing them, instead of trying to figure a way to crop the empty
margin around. (Or printing them just like they are, with the margins)

Again, thanks for your prompt reply,

> Hi,
> Sorry but we do not (yet) have origin latex files as separate downloadable for maemo reference manual or training material.
> For previous maemo platform release (Maemo 4.0 Chinook) we releases also origin files but since then we moved most of maemo documentation to latex (to be able to easily generate good quality documents in different output formats like HTML and PDF) and our new latex doc infra is not yet ready to be published.
> Maybe we can fix this printing problem yu have with PDFs as one very importat reason those PDFs to exist is that people are able to print our docs easily and with good quality (printing html docs is a pain).
> Can you be more specific what goes wrong with you when printing maemo pdfs?
