Iterative Book Production Manifesto

Something I wrote in 2012 for FLOSS Manuals and updated recently to:
https://github.com/greyscalepress/manifestos

We value:

  1. Contributors and facilitators over ‘editors’ and ‘authors’
  2. Collaboration over individualised production
  3. Here and now production over sometime soon production
  4. Meaningful credit for all contributors over single author attribution
