Subject Re: Apache Zest in Action

It is indeed a large effort.
I have been involved in 3 books (reviewer and small content provider), and
it is not fun to underestimate the effort.

Manning has a bunch of papers that describe exactly what will happen. It is
not a given that they will publish a book, just because we are an Apache

I am a bit surprised that Manning hasn't sent the written material before
any phone call. That would make it easier to prepare for the call...
