More thoughts on On-Line GG #galicia

Reading all the comments, there is definately a serious number of people who
still want to receive the printed version. I think that's fine, and
personally, I know I would print and bind mine immediately to read in my
easy chair and later file.

If the GG is done in PDF, it is in printable form no matter who prints it
up. (could have a version with graphics and one without for slow or
non-color printers, or put the graphics at the end of the file or
something -- so many possibilities come to mind). We could have a person
"in charge" in each country to print, bind and send the PDF version at local
postal rates to the societies and people who want hard copy and don't want
to or cannot print themselves . E.g., I receive the PDF version, go to the
University and have it reproduced for 15 ag. (4 cents) a page, have it bound
for 10 shekels ($2.50), buy envelopes, stuff, address and send. All done in
one afternoon for $5-6 each (wild guess). The person would volunteer the
time not the financial outlay.

Does this suggestion deserve development? Still, we need an editor, but
s/he could be separate >from the PDF person and >from the printers and
distributors. The responsibilities of the job would be divided up and made
managable. Maybe then one of the former editors could get back on board?

Just a bunch of ideas early on Saturday morning.
