No, sounds like a good idea since it's usually a new person who
remembers what s/he had problems with. I find some textbooks written by
experts in a field to be on a plane all by themselves. :-)
One thing I noticed when I learned Mason about 2 years ago was that a
lot of the information out there was out of date. Lots of documentation
I found was for the previous version of Mason, mod_perl, or Apache.
Actually, I still had that problem recently with mod_perl/Apache --
trying a tip I found through Google which turned out to be for Apache 1.x.
Some simple suggestions -- you might want to make reference to the other
tutorial which I learned from: the one in the Mason book, which is
available on-line. And you might want to contact the webmasters of the
Mason HQ (probably on this mailing list already :-) ) and see if they
can host your tutorial. (I can't recall anyone voluntarily wanting to
write a Mason tutorial... :-) ).
Will give more sensible comments of the tutorial later :-) (I did
glance through it a bit).
