>>If open source IS going to continue as a subject topic. How about some actual helpful information for techwriters. How to identify promising projects, the level of expertise required to get involved, ways the expertise gained can be marketed, how to break into writing articles, books, etc.<<

Having just opened this subject, I haven't read the old posts but I believe Eric has asked a very good question here. Hey, I too am very interested in new technologies and the right approach to making money on open-source documentation. Better yet, you can call me anything you want. So, if someone can offer workable approaches to acquiring expertise and a paycheck in Open Sourcing, let us know.
