Good idea. I have been working from the opposite end, on a project
anchored on the Wiki page


which documents the known mysteries of Sugar

and a "book" I call Discovering Discovery


intended to guide users on finding out as much as they can themselves,
and giving hints or outright procedural guidance only where necessary.

Perhaps we can bring these two approaches together.

The current site is intended for shaking down the booki software and
rewriting pages until we can take it live as a Sugarlabs subdomain.
You would be welcome to host the project there, or if you prefer, just
link to your site.
