GENERAL MANAGER REPORT - May 2017

NEWS

DPF 2017 Election
Our Distributed Proofreaders Foundation election ended on 26 May. Congratulations to our successful candidates, Juliet Sutherland (JulietS), Sharon Joiner (srjfoo), and David Edwards (De2164) and thanks to all our voters. We had a participation rate of 10.03% this year which is the highest voting rate on record.

The Jesuit Relations
This month saw the posting of Volume 8 of The Jesuit Relations and Allied Documents. This is the final volume of an important Canadian series of reports in French, Latin and Italian with English Translations, all of which have now been completed by DP. These volumes were from North American Jesuit missionaries to update their superiors regarding their activities and include a great deal of detail about native culture and the interaction between natives and europeans in the 1600s and 1700s. What a great addition to Project Gutenberg, especially just before the Canadian 150th Anniversary! Thanks to PM sesquipedalian, PPer eleni, Smooth Reader Stephen Rowland and all the DPers who have worked on these projects!

Smooth Reading Anniversary
June is the 10th anniversary of the Smooth Reading Team! Thanks to all the people who have been part of this important team over the years and to jjz, BookBuff and ThePiedTyper for continuing the work. And, of course, thanks to all of our volunteers who continue to smooth read our projects. Smooth reading is a significant way to ensure the quality of our books.

Other News
I am very pleased to see that we have a new P3er and a new F2er this month! Congratulations to both of them! :Cheer:

DACSoft has decided to step away from the PPV Coordinator role in order to concentrate more on his other DP and volunteer workload. Hdmtrad will continue in the role, which has often in the past been handled by a single coordinator.

Susanskinner has recently joined the db-req team. Thanks, Susan!

GENERAL MANAGER REPORT - May 2017

NEWS

DPF 2017 Election
Our Distributed Proofreaders Foundation election ended on 26 May. Congratulations to our successful candidates, Juliet Sutherland (JulietS), Sharon Joiner (srjfoo), and David Edwards (De2164) and thanks to all our voters. We had a participation rate of 10.03% this year which is the highest voting rate on record.

The Jesuit Relations
This month saw the posting of Volume 8 of The Jesuit Relations and Allied Documents. This is the final volume of an important Canadian series of reports in French, Latin and Italian with English Translations, all of which have now been completed by DP. These volumes were from North American Jesuit missionaries to update their superiors regarding their activities and include a great deal of detail about native culture and the interaction between natives and europeans in the 1600s and 1700s. What a great addition to Project Gutenberg, especially just before the Canadian 150th Anniversary! Thanks to PM sesquipedalian, PPer eleni, Smooth Reader Stephen Rowland and all the DPers who have worked on these projects!

Smooth Reading Anniversary
June is the 10th anniversary of the Smooth Reading Team! Thanks to all the people who have been part of this important team over the years and to jjz, BookBuff and ThePiedTyper for continuing the work. And, of course, thanks to all of our volunteers who continue to smooth read our projects. Smooth reading is a significant way to ensure the quality of our books.

Other News
I am very pleased to see that we have a new P3er and a new F2er this month! Congratulations to both of them! :Cheer:

DACSoft has decided to step away from the PPV Coordinator role in order to concentrate more on his other DP and volunteer workload. Hdmtrad will continue in the role, which has often in the past been handled by a single coordinator.

Susanskinner has recently joined the db-req team. Thanks, Susan!
