packed with open source

Cover of MediaWiki Administrators’ Tutorial Guide

Yay, I’ve been accepted as a reviewer for Packt Publishing’s MediaWiki Administrators’ Tutorial Guide by Mizanur Rahman.

Like the Book Depository, when I purchase books from Packt (pronounced Packed) , the books are delivered to me for free.

Also, Packt supports Open Source. From their web site:

When we sell a book written on an Open Source project, we pay a royalty directly to that project. As a result of purchasing one of our Open Source books, Packt will have given some of the money received to the Open Source project.

I just hope I don’t have any more pressing issues about MediaWiki before the free review copy arrives. But then, that’s the real test. Can I find the answers to my questions more easily in the book, using the MediaWiki website, or by Googling ?
