Team Ada Members,

I just realized that when I sent out the following message last week,
I sent it to comp.lang.ada instead of this list by mistake.  Sorry --
many of you have already seen this.

The volume mentioned below will be the first in the "LearnAda"
series, and there will eventually be a web site.

The need for a small book called "Ada for Dummies" was discussed
here a while back, and someone suggested it should be called
"Ada for Smart People" instead.

Well, I have drafted a small volume called "Ada Essentials:
Overview, Examples and Glossary" and now I am hoping to find a
publisher.  This is new territory for me, and I seek any advice
you teamers care to give, as to specific publishers I might
contact or how to go about this process in general.

By the way, I plan to make this volume available in several
different forms (some electronic) -- one of which is a
browser-based collection of web pages.  I would be happy to
send a copy of the current draft to, say, each of the first 20
teamers who request one from me directly via email (not through
this list).
