(Cross post. Yes, I know this is short notice and a short window to 
reply.   My apologies on that.)

X.Org Book Sprint 2012
Monday Sept 17 & Tuesday Sept 18.
Nürnberg (Nuremberg), Germany.

    The X.Org Consortium will hold a book sprint on the Monday and
Tuesday before the Developers Conference in Nürnberg Germany.
During these two days attendees will focus on a book for graphics
drivers development.  The book will be targeted towards new
contributors but will have enough details to be useful to all
levels of graphics driver development.  Anyone interested in
helping out and contributing to the book sprint is encouraged to
get involved.

 From http://www.booksprints.net/about/

"A Book Sprint brings together a group to produce a book in 3-5 days.
There is no pre-production and the group is guided by a facilitator
from zero to published book. The books produced are high quality
content and are made available immediately at the end of the sprint
via print-on-demand services and e-book formats."

Our book sprint will be slightly different than that.  Our book sprint
is only two days and we are not starting from complete scratch. We are
starting with Marcheu's existing guide, located at:
