Unfortunately the Tutorial book cannot be changed without releasing
a whole new version.
The choice was to release the book with or without an ISBN.
This choice has implications.
An ISBN book can only have minor typo-style edits.
An ISBN book can be ordered by universities, book stores, etc.
An ISBN book can be picked up by B&N, Amazon, etc.
An ISBN costs money to register ($140)
A non-ISBN book can be changed at any time
A non-ISBN book cannot be purchase-ordered (eliminates most univs)
A non-ISBN book cannot be picked up by B&N, Amazon, etc.
A non-ISBN book is free
So I decided that the cost, which allowed much wider distribution,
was worth the restriction that it could not be changed without
producing a whole new version. Perhaps we can consider doing that
over the christmas holidays (when I get a larger block of time to
work on axiom)
Of course, we have no restriction on the version in the Axiom
source tree.
Since you're advocating the change, you're volunteering, right? :-) :-)
(Heck, if you want you can even put YOUR name on the cover instead
of mine)
