From now on, member's contributions to the committee's guides will be publicly visible on Github. To see who has contributed to the guides since the move to Github visit https://github.com/b...hs/contributors

The page will be prominently linked on the committee's home page, when this launches.

To be part of the guides, you need a Github account. If you don't have one, please set up an account on Github.com and email me your Github username and cc Chris Arnesen the committee's Web Lead.

If you would like to make contributions to the guides or to the committee's minutes, as soon as you create your Github username and get added to the committee's repository, you can use any of your favorite Github tools (or http://prose.io that makes editing documents on Github extremely easy) to make changes. The guides and the minutes are written in a markup language, like html, called "Markdown". The language is very simple and we use it because it makes the conversion to other formats extremely simple. (Find a cheatsheet for Markdown at https://github.com/a...down-Cheatsheet). The guides are in the "guides" directory under english, spanish, italian (the spanish and italian folders are empty). On the same Github repository, under the minutes directory, you can find the minutes of the committee's meetings.

Please let me know if you would like me to create a video tutorial on using Github and Prose.io. I am looking forward to receiving your Github account names.
