 To make it easy, you can publish it as a document on Google docs. You can
give write permissions to those who wish to contribute. Google docs has
versioning support too.

Since readers can be without much background in computers, i think, we can
do away with the commands. My experience is -  people are scared of typing
commands. Linux can be presented as another, if not better 'Windows'.
Anyways, most distros default to runlevel 5, and many users never get to(and
wish to) see the console. Maybe, we can put up(in the stall) a couple of
screenshots of the free applications mentioned in the flyer. That should
(hopefully) gather some attention. Compiz screenshots can be presented to
attract people ;) Banners mentioning pros (of using Linux) and cons(of using
Windoze :P ) can take some place. More can be done on similar lines.
For those from technical or academic field(engg. sophomores for example),
commands would be appropriate. Editors and IDEs are already mentioned in the
current draft. Screenshots of DDD/KDBG and/or Anjuta/Kdevelop can be
included. And more...

Also, is it feasible to print on both sides ? We'll have twice as much
space. Just a thought...

Comments welcome. CMIIW.
