Aiman Posted January 28, 2008 Share Posted January 28, 2008 I downloaded the reformatted C.P. 1-82 PDF document from cozybuilders.org, and am going through them. I am trying to figure out why we don't just combine the relevant CP updates into the build manual? It seems like it would be trivial to OCR the typewriter-produced original build manual, then insert the reformatted updates and drawings into the Open-EZ build documents, then add the Roncz and long rudder (or other) plans. It's actually a project that I could take on myself, as my box absolutely rips at OCR, and properly cuts out the images. I will look into it when I get my TERF disc ordered. Then we could release it as either a .odf (open document) or cleaned up, single PDF. Anyone have any objections or see any barriers to doing this, then releasing it as our own 'Open-EZ builders guide' ? ex. Would it be considered a copyright violation if we did extensive re-edits of the documentation? I'm envisioning a 'one click' download of the plans drawings & builders guide for future builders, along with an OpenEz per-chapter Wiki, perhaps at a dedicated openez site. The Wiki 'framework' I could have done in an afternoon, as I work with that type of stuff on a daily basis... EDIT: In fact... here is a summary of the safety related changes to the Long-EZ that were included in the CP newsletters: http://www.cozybuilders.org/ref_info/Canard_Pusher/LongEZ_Plans_ChangesUpdate.htm Very valuable summary.
