I can contribute DTP work. I have a full suite of professional
electronic publishing tools and can prepare things like books,
brochures, leaflets, etc., that might be useful for promotional use. Not
being a marketroid, I'm not necessarily qualified to write the content
(although I can certainly help with that if needed), but I can massage
it all into page layouts that can be converted to PDFs and
professionally printed. (I can't cover the physical printing myself,
though, as actually printing the documents costs more than I can

If you're going to pitch FreeBSD to corporations and other serious
organizations, you need some sort of promotional literature. Preparing
PDFs for printing or display is delicate work; and Microsoft Word or
StarOffice are not the tools for doing it, sorry.
