funding (was Bibliographic Issues should be added to the marketing strategy)

Bruce D'Arcus
I like the pledge idea too, though perhaps before doing that we ought
to come up with the most important tasks, and some rough target
amount?

Also, I wonder if a project like Edubuntu might not be helpful
someway? The homepage says they will be tragetting higher ed in the
future, and their founder has quite a history driving (and funding)
free software.

Yes it is work a try I will do some research, see how how other project do it.
Also I will draw up the list of tasks and try and set some target amounts. And
we do have our first pledge - thank you Mohammad Al-Ubaydli.

I had heard of it, but had not read any details, which I have now done. It is
a Linux distribution aimed at the education market and it uses Openoffice as
its office suite.

 A quick look at  the founder, Mark Shuttleworth's blog,would suggest he is
well worth contacting. I will work Bruce in composing an approach.

regards


David

You have a $100 pledge from me as well.  Please let me
know when a formal framework is selected for making
pledges and I will do it.

I will try to help keep those tasks as developer oriented as possible. One
problem I obviously had was trying to interpret the citation requirements in
terms of actual C++ code and OpenOffice.org design.

I still have relatively little time, but I should be able to help a small bit
with this task. (Hopefully this may not preclude me from participating in
bounty hunting in a few months if my free time becomes more abundant :)

Sounds great CPH; had a feeling you might have something useful to
contribute in just this area.

One more possible source of funds -- http://www.linuxfund.org/ I have met
them when they very generously funded Nigel Cunnigham (developer of the
suspend2 kernel patch).

Come to think of it, one way for you to help would be for you to write
up what you think needs to be done for the most important bits, and
attach a reasonable target amount to it (or to each piece if more
appropriate).

To get things started, if *I* were writing the former, I'd say:

1)  read, display and write new OpenDocument citation field (we haven't
used the term "field" to describe it yet, but we may as well start;
that's what it is)

2)  expose a citation API

I think those are the most critical, and the rest is somewhat flexible.
I'd still like to hold out some possibility of using citeproc XSLT
directly rather than having to port it, for example, as MS has done
with their formatting approach.
