IMPORTANT: the relationship envisaged with the Desktop Starter Guide is one of NO OVERLAP! This means that users will be able to easily see which guide to use for a particular task. In this context it is important to remember that '''server guide does not mean admin guide'''. Both guides will have reference to administrative tools, but the Desktop guide will tell the user how to setup a desktop, whereas the Server guide will tell the user how to set up servers like apache and ssh on his computer.

Ubuntu Server Starter Guide Specification

  1. Audience: The target audience for the Ubuntu Server Starter Guide is broad: new users and experienced users should benefit from it. However, it will focus on command line tools as the default ubuntu-server install has no graphic environment.

  2. Document Outline: See the Document Outline section below.

  3. Target Presentation Formats: xml, html

  4. License: DocteamLicense

  5. Technologies and Techniques: DocBook xml, and stored in the docteam's SubVersion repository.

  6. Release Target: Dapper Drake (Ubuntu 6.04), April, 2006

  7. Links to Current Version: At this time, the current version is only available in the docteam's Subversion repository.

  8. How to Contribute: The best way to contribute is to send an email to the ubuntu-doc mailing list (ubuntu-doc@lists.ubuntu.com)

  9. Primary Contacts: DocumentationTeam, MatthewEast, RobertStoffers and ["Bhuvan"]

Relationship with Desktop Starter Guide

IMPORTANT: the relationship envisaged with the Desktop Starter Guide is one of NO OVERLAP! This means that users will be able to easily see which guide to use for a particular task. In this context it is important to remember that Server Guide does not mean Admin Guide. Both guides will have reference to administrative tools, but the Desktop guide will tell the user how to setup a desktop, whereas the Server guide will tell the user how to set up servers like apache and ssh on his computer.
