Before you distribute your documentation, there are a few more things that you will need to check and possibly add to your document.
You can read more about helper applications in Section 3.3, “Spell Check”. You should also check your document for its overall flow and clarity.
Add a short paragraph which clearly defines the scope of your document. For more information on how to add this information using DocBook please read Section 6, “Markup for Metadata”
Give credit where credit is due. For more information about when to give credit, read Section 3, “Acknowledgments”.
The LDP distributes documents, however, the author maintains the copyright on the document. All documents accepted by the LDP must contain a license and copyright notice. You can read more about this in Section 2.1, “Copyright”. You may also want to add a Disclaimer, but this is optional. More about this in Section 2.2, “Disclaimer”.
If you are submitting a DocBook or LinuxDoc document, make sure the markup is valid. Read why in Section 3.1, “Why Validate Your Document”.
You may want to have others review your document before submitting it to the LDP. Ask people for a Peer Review and/or a Technical Accuracy Review. Since not all mailing lists will respond favorably to attachments, you may wish to set up a temporary web site which houses your document. Note: this is absolutely not required.
