I'm a Debian developer and the author a French Debian bestseller. I want to make an English translation of this book and get it published under a free license (compatible with The Debian Free Software Guidelines). But to complete this project, we need time and thus money. That's why we have setup a crowfunding campaign where you can pre-order the book.
Given than LMDE is very close to Debian, I'm convinced this book would be an invaluable resource for LMDE users. You can check out its table of content here: http://debian-handbook.info/about-the-book/toc/
This would also be the first free, up-do-date book about Debian that can be integrated into Debian proper.
Please have a look at the project and pledge some money if you want to see this project come through:
Thank you very much!
