In 2020, work on the Twine Cookbook will turn three years old—although its first published version was in January 2018, work on it began in mid-2017. It was one of the earliest projects that the IFTF Twine committee undertook, and it sought to remedy what had been a long-standing issue in the Twine community: a lack of hands-on documentation describing how to do common tasks with Twine. The Cookbook began with 59 Web pages and has grown to 162 in its 2.0 release this past May.
At least in my estimation, it has been a stellar success, and this is thanks to contributions from both the Twine committee and the larger community. I feel it truly has been a collective accomplishment. But among the many contributors the Cookbook has seen, I think credit above all belongs with Dan Cox, who has served as editor and maintainer for the Cookbook since its inception. I am deeply grateful for the work he’s done for the community.
Circumstances have called for Dan to take a less active role on the Cookbook in the near future, however, and so the Twine committee needs to find a successor for the role of maintainer and editor. As part of our efforts, I’d like to put out a call to the community to see if there is interest. If you would be interested in serving as maintainer, please contact IFTF. Dan and the rest of the committee are committed to a smooth transition process, and are more than willing to work with a new volunteer to help them get up to speed.
