PDF version of docs/guides



The discussion about the writing style and the effect it has reminded me that it
would be a good idea to make a PDF format of our guides. People prefer to read
tutorials in print. (Especially if it's the installation guide!)

Furthermore, I believe that writing documentation with a printable result in
mind, probably produces better content. To be honest, if there was a way we
could get the desktop guide and probably a troubleshoot guide in PDF, I might
jump into translating them, install Fedora for my father at home tomorrow and
hand him the guides for the rest.

So, suggestions: First fix the PDF-creation problems and having a goal in the
back of our minds to create a nice printable PDF with the most useful guides
bundled together (installation, desktop, administration, FAQ and Troubleshoot)?

Last discussions I found about PDFs are the following:

 * http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-docs-list/2006-January/msg00179.html

Any thoughts about this? Suggestions, steps, problems, blah?
