I haven't had a chance to look at it - but I think all needed changes
are just adjusting the rules' names and making sure that they follow
some defined variables (such as $PUBLISHDIR). If you have any additional
rules (the dos text target?) they can remain (and they can be reintegrated).

Maintainers should have the technical info about what would it take
to do it. At worst, we can just make a new subdir and commit the current
checkouted tutorial to it, but there should be a cleaner solution. Adam?
