A printable and/or readable document explaining Snowdrift . We couldn't decide whether to call it the "manifesto", the "book", the "memorandums", the "ukase", etc. So for now it's called the "Snowdrift Pumpkin".

Snowdrift Pumpkin

This is a book/manifesto/canon/ukase/whatever explaining the structure, motivation, ideology, and economics of Snowdrift. We couldn't decide what to call it, so for now it's called "The Snowdrift Pumpkin", per the suggestion of Snowdrift's lead developer, Bryan Richter.

It's licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, version 4.0. You can read a non-legalese version or read the legalese in the LICENSE file in this repository.

Reading the pumpkin

The book doesn't have much (or any) content yet, so you have to compile it by hand if you want to read it. To do so, you need a UNIX-like system, and to install [Git][git-install] as well as TeX Live. See the Installing TeXLive section for OS-specific instructions regarding TeX Live.

Once you have all that, compiling is easy:

git clone https://notabug.org/pharpend/pumpkin.git
cd pumpkin
make

The book will show up as pumpkin-en.pdf.

Sometimes, you'll get cryptic errors. If that happens, run make clean, and try again. If that doesn't work, you can try to fix the error yourself, or you can contact the maintainer at peter@harpending.org.

Installing TeXLive

This varies by OS. If your OS isn't listed, guess based on the instructions for similar OSes. If your OS isn't listed, and you know/figure out how to set up TeXLive, then please to add instructions to this document, and send a merge request. If you don't know how, or don't want to do that, you could also email peter@harpending.org with the instructions.

Linux

Arch

If you want the kitchen sink, run this.

pacman -S texlive-most

For this book, specifically, this should be just fine:

pacman -S texlive-latexextra

Although I haven't tested it. You can see the Arch Wiki page on TeXLive if you want more information.
