I'll have a look for the test suite doc - it might be of interest to
And yes, there's lots of potential publishers. I really need to have a
partner to work with though - it's a huge job putting together a book,
from what I've heard from other authors. And I still have a day job...
and a young child to look after!

sorry I get the emails in batch mode, thats why I opened a new thread
too (didn't know about yours at that time).
However, in terms of helping to
- get a general structure for such book,
- developing common use cases (experiences with OJ), and for
- reading/editing/making figures (with OJ and Illustrator)
I would offer my help, although you know I am far away from being a
computational geometry expert, and are not sure how much free time I
will have between Jan and April and after (will teach a GIS II class for
the first time).
Ask me if you need feedback - worst answer would be that I don't have
time at the moment.
