Hello Alain, thanks for the email. I personally favor combining
efforts, so I think it would be a great idea to try and move/copy
these books of yours to Wikibooks. If you take a look around at our
current mathematical offerings, we are woefully incomplete in many
mathematics topics. We recently received a donation for a book on
Linear Algebra. The upload and translate portion of that project,
while slow, is consistent. Other books on topics like Arithmetic and
Algebra are in poor condition and can use all the help they can get.
In addition to our current books, we can start new books on these
topics also, if that is more appropriate.
I'll take a look at your books and see if there are things that we can
adapt for our own uses. As with all GFDL projects, if we used material
from your website, we would grant proper attribution to you. If you
would like to "join forces" entirely, we would love to have you and
your books on Wikibooks. If not, that's fine too.

1) I am new to this list so, please forgive me if this
is the wrong
place, the wrong topic, the wrong anything for the following:
2) I am developing a series of mathematics texts under a GNU Free
Documentation License available at freemathtexts.org
3) It occurred to me that they may offer a contents base for a wikibook.
4) As the project described there is far from being completed and
still awfully time-consuming I am quite unable to do it myself but
would be quite happy to grant permission if permission is needed or
