Sounds great.  I think it would definitely be good to get them in CVS so
we can all see where they're going.  If we do that, it might be good to
mark some sections as being tentative or something, so if we change
direction, people looking at CVS versions don't get burned.  But in
general, letting people look at them easily can only help.

We need to do this, anyway.  Additionally, if we could get them in a
printable form it would totally rock!  We could start the GNOME
press. (-;

I think that this might be better as a "How to get started with GNOME"
tutorial-type thing.  No, I'm not volunteering to write it, but ideally
it would take the user through all the steps of making a GNOME
application.  I think gedit may be too big for this.

We have enough lists in GNOME.  You should only be allowed to make a new
list if you kill an old one concurrently. (-:
