GRASS GIS Promotion

Here can the GRASS GIS promotion team coordinate its work.

Where can we get some resources (financial or support) to print the brochures
Ideally you get yourself a corporate sponsor who either does the printing (Autodesk has been very helpful in this respect and they have offices everywhere) or sponsors the printing costs. For example, in Germany you can also directly request for OSGeo funds through FOSSGIS e.V., in Italy through GFOSS.it. Describe what event you need the brochures for and add an estimate of the printing costs. For larger international events you should contact OSGeo's Marketing Committee, they have a small budget but mostly they can help to coordinate.

Promo file management

In order to manage the workflow from draft to final promo material, we store the files in the GRASS promo SVN server. This is a collaborative source code management system based on subversion (SVN) which keeps track of code changes in a central spot and handles all the accounting work needed to cleanly handle version numbers and change history.

What do you need to do:

  • get a SVN client
    • Linux: subversion package which is included in your distribution
    • Windows: download and install TortoiseSVN)
    • MacOSX: ... (please add here)
  • get the GRASS Promo-SVN directory through the client:
  • enjoy the existing material - please improve, translate and extend it.
