I've got a few emails in box so I'll reply to this first and get round
to the rest later.

I'm doing overtime at work this Saturday and Sunday and I've got other
stuff to do that can't get done during the week so I'll try to make a
start on it when I get some spare time.

I was really only intending to get involved in the documentation side of
this project but as I've come to realise, being a very young project,
I'll have to 'get my hands dirty and go under the bonnet' to find what
whether the code I use is functioning properly or not. If by doing this,
if I can get up to speed with C, GObject, JS and the internal workings
of Seed, I'll try to help on the coding side but not promising

This is worth looking into as while writing tutorials is beneficial, a
set of reference manuals like PyGtk would be a lot better.

I haven't touched the C-side part of Seed but I have had a look at the
documentation material and it is top drawer stuff!! 

I've made a note of finding this all the JS-side stuff and putting it in
the Seed Wiki when I get the time. If you having any stuff lying about
your hard-drive, please mail it to me and I'll see what I can do with
