quite seriously i think they broke rule #1 of
clear and direct information on where to find the raw source...dist of a
PDF with no ref where to find reusable original does not impress me that
they understand the situation...
In fact, this isn't in their suggestions either; at p. 21 they say
«Allow the creation of variations and enhancements through open
licences» as if licenses were enough; and the weird "open definition"
they use for unknown reasons http://opendefinition.org/okd/
I could add that they say «Use open formats wherever possible to make it
easier for alternative access systems and devices to display and control
the resource» but UNESCO page says "Download Acrobat reader". :-/
That said, my question was more a pragmatic one, like: how can I exploit
such (partly) good things UNESCO states to get the management/staff of
my university use and produce more free/open tools and materials?
yeah. i guess it can help open up the field for people and that was
their intention. but still...aarhggh! ;)
