GITenberg is an exploration of how Project Gutenberg might work if all the Gutenberg texts were on Github, so that tools like version control, continuous integration, and pull-request workflow could be employed. For forty years, Project Gutenberg has led the way in making public domain text live on the internet as ebooks. It is hoped that Project Gutenberg can take advantage of GITenberg's experience; work in that direction has begun but needs resources and volunteers. https://www.GITenberg.org
The Free ebook Foundation also takes advantage of its small size and flexibility to undertake exploratory projects. Our recent work has centered on free ebook usage and automated updates.
