You shouldn't post from a Hotmail account ;-)

I do not have influence on how the cover ends up in the book - the Wiki 
plugin does that.  But it could be that the Wiki page layout 
http://docs.slackware.com/slackbook:epub:title can be modified so that 
the page flow does not occur.

Any Wiki editor can upload newer versions of the bitmap. It should be 
located at :slackbook:epub:cover.png because the epub plugin demands 
"cover.png" as the name of the bitmap.
The plugin looks for a cover.png in the same namespace as where the 
title page is stored, which is :slackbook:epub:title (the name "title" 
is also mandatory).

for the media. The title page is 
http://docs.slackware.com/slackbook:epub:title as I said earlier.

The epub definition is simply:

<epub:Slackware Linux Essentials, Revised>
   [[:slackbook:conventions_used_in_this_book|Conventions Used in this 
   [[slackbook:intro_to_slackware|Introduction to Slackware]]
   [[:slackbook:shell|Basic Shell Commands]]
   [[:slackbook:bash|The Bourne Again Shell]]
   [[:slackbook:process_control|Process Control]]
   [[:slackbook:xwindow_system|The X Window System]]
   [[:slackbook:users|Users and Groups]]
   [[:slackbook:filesystem_permissions|Filesystem Permissions]]
   [[:slackbook:working_with_filesystems|Working with Filesystems]]
   [[:slackbook:wifi|Wireless Networking]]
   [[:slackbook:basic_networking_utilities|Basic Networking Utilities]]
   [[:slackbook:package_management|Package Management]]
   [[:slackbook:tracking_updates|Keeping Track of Updates]]
   [[:slackbook:linux_kernel|The Linux Kernel]]

... so there is nothing that can be changed here, if anything, it must 
be done in that "title" page.
Any Wiki editor can update the cover.png image _and_ can generate a new 
EPUB file by first clicking "Remove page from Creator List" in 
http://docs.slackware.com/epub:slackbook and then clicking "Start". You 
should see the EPUB being created "live" in the page and the new link 
will appear at the end.

I will be unavailable for the rest of the week probably.
