This is all an excellent idea. What about the idea
of starting something in
a structured way (say by posting new material every
week or so) but then
leaving the material up for anyone to go over
Yep I agree with that, but I wouln't want to make
another tutorial who's only purpose is being hanged
from a web page. I'd rather focus it in us, the group,
those who wanna learn. After that, we could compile
the information as well as the most interesting
questions and answers and putting it in a web page, I
like that idea.
I think we could have a good combination of material on a webpage and emails
to a mailing list. That would allow people to follow the mailing list
threads and work from the material on the webpage in what time they have
Yep, and also it shows in the web what we do, and what
our project are. They don't become lost in time.
Yes, that is a good point :)
I'm not subscribed to d-mentors, is it worth joining
it? is it friendly?
If you are interested in packaging, it is definitely worth joining
d-mentors, even if you don't post anything to the list. It is mainly
focussed on people asking packaging questions, looking for sponsors, working
out how to package the things that interest them, etc.
Yep, my time scale would be something like this:
I would be inclined to break your suggested plan up into smaller sections,
specifically to cater to the fact that people will have very different
levels of background knowledge.
I also think it's worth keeping in mind that with anything like this, people
will go on holidays for a fortnight, become too busy to pay attention to it
for awhile, etc. So it's important, in my opinion, to set a practical
schedule that will allow people to catch up with the main thing later on.
