Linux documentation is coordinated through the efforts of the Linux Documentation Project. The overall goal of the LDP is to collaborate in taking care of all of the issues of Linux documentation, ranging from online docs (man pages, texinfo docs, and so on) to printed manuals covering topics such as installing, using, and running Linux. The LDP is essentially a loose team of volunteers with no real central organization; anyone who is interested in helping is welcome to join in the effort. We feel that working together and agreeing on the direction and scope of Linux documentation is the best way to go, to reduce problems with conflicting efforts--- e.g. two people writing two books on the same aspect of Linux wastes someone's time along the way.
The LDP is set out to produce the canonical set of Linux online and printed documentation. Because our docs will be freely available (as per the GNU GPL) and distributed on the net, we are able to easily update the documentation to stay on top of the many changes in the Linux world.

The LDP has so far produced a number of Linux documents and manuals:
