We want to write a bigger document in collaboration. Therefore I've got some questions how to organize this best.
so we would have one master document including (or inputting) all the parts of the "book" -- is this the right way to do it? If one is working only within one part he need's to compile everything to see the results -- is there a handy way to handle this more efficient?
are there any other packages, latex-routines etc. which could help working on one big document?
we would have own packages providing some own styles, environments etc.
I thought a svn might be useful, but the only common available space we have is a simple ftp-server..
I really would appreciate some ideas and tipps before we start writing a collaborative work..
